Neuroimaging findings of babies with microcephaly and presumed congenital Zika virus infection

Microcephaly results from reduced brain growth. Affected infants are born with a smaller head size than normal, or their head stops growing after birth. It is a rare condition with estimated incidences varying geographically; in the United States reported incidence ranges from 2 to 12 babies per 10 000 live births. The causes are numerous, including chromosomal abnormalities, intrauterine infections, exposure to toxic substances during pregnancy, and severe malnutrition.
