The Hospital Clínic committed to universal screening for cytomegalovirus in the first trimester of pregnancy

The Hospital Clínic de Barcelona, through the Maternal Foetal Medicine Service led by Dr. Francesc Figueras, has consolidated its screening programme for pregnant women to find out whether they were infected with cytomegalovirus (CMV) during the period of risk.

It is now known that the risk of foetal impairment and sequelae is concentrated in the first trimester of pregnancy.
