Zika and Microcephaly

Zika and Microcephaly

A new born with microcephaly has a smaller head than other infants of the same sex and age, which is a birth defect. Smaller brains that may not have properly matured are frequently found in infants with microcephaly. Microcephaly is a condition brought on by zika virus infection during pregnancy. A baby's head develops during pregnancy because the baby's brain also expands. A baby's brain may not have fully formed throughout pregnancy or may have ceased growing after delivery, leading to microcephaly.

  • Severe microcephaly with partially collapsed skull

  • Reduced brain tissue with a certain type of brain injury

  • Damage to the back of the eye, such as scarring or changes in pigment

  • Limited range of motion joints, such as clubfoot

  • Soon after delivery, excess muscle tone restricts movement
