Clinical Guidance for Healthcare Providers Caring for Infants & Children

Summary

Key Points:

  • Testing of infants with possible congenital Zika virus infection should be guided by 1) whether the infant has abnormalities consistent with congenital Zika syndrome (e.g., microcephaly, intracranial calcifications, or other brain or eye abnormalities) and 2) the mother’s Zika virus testing results.
  • Acute Zika virus disease should be suspected in an infant or child aged <18 years who 1) traveled to or resided in an affected area within the past 2 weeks and 2) has two or more of the following manifestations: fever, rash, conjunctivitis, or arthralgia.
  • Acute Zika virus disease should also be suspected in an infant in the first 2 weeks of life 1) whose mother traveled to or resided in an affected area within 2 weeks of delivery and 2) who has two or more of the following manifestations: fever, rash, conjunctivitis, or arthralgia.
  • Zika virus infection can be diagnosed by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) or through serologic testing.
  • No cases of Zika virus infection associated with breastfeeding have been reported. CDC encourages mothers with Zika virus infection and living in areas with ongoing Zika virus transmission to breastfeed their infants. Current evidence suggests that the benefits of breastfeeding outweigh the theoretical risks of Zika virus transmission through breast milk.

Latest Changes: CDC updated the guidance on August 19, 2016. The revised guidance updates recommendations for the initial evaluation and testing of infants born to mothers with laboratory evidence of Zika virus infection during pregnancy and establishes recommendations for the outpatient management and follow up of infants with laboratory evidence of congenital Zika virus infection, with or without apparent abnormalities consistent with congenital Zika syndrome (e.g., microcephaly, intracranial calcifications, or other brain or eye abnormalities). Families and caregivers will need ongoing psychosocial support and assistance with coordination of care.
