Further Symptoms Linked to Zika in Babies

2016-09-28 20:45:12

Many pregnant women affected by the Zika virus have yet to find out how it will affect their babies, but Vanessa van der Linden has some ideas. She’s one of the first researchers to link Zika virus to microcephaly. Microcephaly is a birth defect that leaves newborn babies with misshapen heads that are smaller than average and tend to slope backward. Other problems linked to the virus include conjunctivitis, hearing damage, and arthrogryposis, a condition leaving a child’s joints in contorted positions. Peter Hotez at Baylor College of Medicine says, “There’s probably a spectrum of illness similar to autism and it could take years for scientists to sort it all out.”
