National Congenital CMV Disease Registry – Baylor (USA)

The registry is a research program working to learn more about those children born with symptoms of congenital CMV disease. Aside from research, the National Congenital CMV Disease Registry provides an outreach program consisting of the web site, written educational material, and an annual newsletter, CMV Updates for the purpose of educating health care professionals, families, and all others interested in learning more about congenital CMV disease. Additionally, we established and maintain a parent support network as a forum where parents of children congenitally infected with CMV can contact other parents dealing with the challenges of raising a child born with CMV. www.bcm.tmc.edu/pedi/infect/cmv
