AbstractThe case of an infant with congenital cytomegalovirus infection presenting as fulminant persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn is described. High-frequency oscillatory ventilation, administration of MgSO4, and inhaled nitric oxide therapy appeared to be synergistic and efficient in lowering pulmonary vascular resistance. Early diagnosis and treatment of congenital cytomegalovirus infection should be considered when persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn is associated with clinical features of intrauterine growth retardation, thrombocytopenia, and early neonatal hepatitis syndrome.
