GUNTURIZ, María Luz et al. Congenital cerebral toxoplasmosis, Zika and chikungunya virus infections: A case report. Biomédica [online]. 2018, vol.38, n.2, pp.144-152. ISSN 0120-4157.

We report a case of intrauterine infection by Toxoplasma gondii, Chikungunya and Zika viruses in a Colombian woman from the southern part of the country. The patient attended prenatal care in the second trimester of her pregnancy and she informed that in the first trimester she had presented with clinical symptoms compatible with Zika virus infection. Amniotic fluid PCR assays showed infection by T. gondii, chikungunya and Zika viruses. Diagnostic imaging showed fetal malformation of the central nervous system. At 29 weeks of gestation, pregnancy was terminated medically.

Keywords : Toxoplasmosis, congenital; Zika virus; Chikungunya virus; congenital abnormalities; infection; cerebrum.
