Abstract

Cytomegalovirus(CMV) associated thrombosis has been reported sporadically in the medical literature; however, its antenatal scenario has not been documented. We herein present the antenatal, Doppler's ultrasound and magnetic resonance angiographic features of thrombosis in the aortic arch showing extension toward the medial lumen of the brachiocephalic trunk with critical occlusion of the left common carotid artery and left subclavian artery in a term fetus to raise obstetricians'/ neonatologists'/pediatric cardiologists' awareness for the association between CMV viremia and intrauterine thrombosis that caused cerebral injury, neurodevelopmental impairment, and permanent sequela.
