Abstract

Abstract: We report a newborn with congenital dengue infection and cardiomyopathy. Congenital dengue is known to occur owing to vertical transmission of the virus from an infected mother to her baby through the placenta. Dengue-related cardiomyopathy has been reported previously. This is arguably the first time cardiomyopathy is being reported in the context of congenital dengue. A systematic review of literature on congenital dengue as cited in Pubmed is also presented.
