The Cardiovascular Involvement In The Zika Virus Infection
The evidences highlight that 13.5% of the echocardiographic studies performed in children with congenital Zika virus infection presented amendments of congenital heart disease (CHD). Several recent studies have shown that the pathogenesis of neurological complications of the Zika virus, as Guillain-Barre Syndrome, in relation to other clinical manifestations there are still no conclusive findings. Scientific studies have observed the possibility of cardiac involvement be underdiagnosed due to the mercy of the infection per ZIKV, in their majority.
