Abstract

Congenital cytomegalovirus infection can cause a wide variety of symptoms. We report three infants with congenital cytomegalovirus infection presenting with respiratory insufficiency associated with persistent diaphragmatic dysfunction. Congenital cytomegalovirus infection should be considered in the differential diagnosis of neonatal diaphragmatic dysfunction.
