Congenital Herpes Hearing Loss

A systematic review of the incidence of sensorineural hearing loss in neonates exposed to Herpes simplex virus (HSV). Viruses can cause hearing loss. One such virus is the herpes simplex virus. It is rare, but possible, for a newborn baby to acquire hearing loss as a result of this virus. The term congenital hearing loss means the hearing loss is present at birth.

In about 25 of cases of hearing loss there is a non-genetic cause that can be identified. Measles) , Cytomegalovirus (also known by the initials CMV) and Herpes. The amount of hearing loss that can result varies widely and some babies show no hearing loss at all, even if they have one of these infections. HSV-2 (type II) typically infects below the waste causing genital herpes which is spread from person to person by means of sexual intercourse (1). Other symptoms may rarely occur such as chills, muscle pain, hearing loss, or trouble swallowing. Despite this seemingly low prevalence, neonatal HSV accounts for.

Non-genetic Hearing Loss

Congenital hearing loss is a hearing loss present at birth. It can include hereditary hearing loss or hearing loss due to other factors present either in-utero (prenatal) or at the time of birth. Babies who survive serious herpes infections may develop mental retardation, seizures, cerebral palsy or hearing loss (see next page for treatments, prevention and resources).

Congenital hearing loss is the most common sequela of recurrent CMV infection. The risk of neonatal herpes and death is highest in infants born to mothers who have not seroconverted by the time of delivery. It is also reported in the same document, that many babies who survive widespread internal organ infections and brain infections develop lasting disabilities, such as mental retardations, cerebral palsy, seizures, and vision or hearing loss. Congenital infections affect the unborn fetus or newborn infant. Hearing loss is the most common developmental disability, especially from CMV and Rubella infections. 50 of all cases of congenital hearing loss in children are caused by genetic factors. Prenatal illnesses account for 5-10 of the cases of congenital hearing loss and include infections during pregnancy, such as rubella, cytomegalovirus, herpes or syphilis, toxins consumed by the mother during pregnancy or other conditions occurring at the time of birth or shortly thereafter. This group of viruses includes the herpes simplex viruses, varicella-zoster virus (which causes chickenpox and shingles) , and Epstein-Barr virus (which causes infectious mononucleosis, also known as mono). CMV infection will develop permanent problems (such as hearing loss or developmental disabilities) due to the infection.

Viral Infections And Pregnancy

Although most infants with congenital CMV have no problems, infection in early pregnancy can cause miscarriage or birth defects and CMV is a leading cause of congenital deafness. Maternal infection at conception or within the first two weeks of pregnancy may lead to hearing and vision loss and mental retardation. Genital herpes are caused by herpes simplex virus (HSV) type-2 and, less frequently, by HSV type-1 that usually causes cold sores. Problems that congenital CMV can cause include hearing loss and learning difficulties. Some are minor and cause no problems; others cause major disabilities. While still in the womb, some babies have problems with how their organs and body parts form, how they work, or how their bodies turn food into energy. Genital herpes virus infection of the mother, which can cause brain damage, cerebral palsy, vision or hearing impairment, and death of the baby if the virus is transmitted to the infant before or during the birth. This is not the same herpes virus involved in genital herpes. It is also thought that a similar syndrome, indistinguishable from vestibular neuritis, can be caused by loss of blood flow to the inner ear (Chuang et al. There is also neuropathological evidence for loss of vestibular ganglion lesions. What are some of the diseases that could contribute to a hearing loss for the newborn? What is cytomegalovirus (CMV) ? What is herpes simplex? What is rubella? What is varicella? What is syphilis? What is toxoplasmosis? What is meningitis? Hearing loss that is present at birth is called congenital hearing loss. This is a kind of herpes virus that can cause a sore throat, fever, swollen glands and fatigue (feeling tired all the time).
