Abstract

Introduction: Zika virus infection (ZIKV) has emerged as a significant threat for the health of pregnant women and newborns in populations living or visiting Latin America since the epidemic begun in 2015. Reported possible consequences included particularly the risk of associated microcephaly, still to be proved in detail and confirmed, but potentially of other congenital defects. Methods: The method used a database journals in PubMed, ProQuest and Medline used the keywords, after the data obtained was reviewed journal research was conducted. Search result found 22 journal but in accordanced with the topic was 8 journal with a span of February-March 2016. Result: 1). Provide further support for a link between maternal ZIKV infection and fetal and placental abnormalities that is not unlike that of other viruses that are known to cause congenital infections characterized by intrauterine growth restriction and placental insufficiency. 2). women with a positive ZIKV RT-PCR or with cocerning findings on USS should be referred to a fetal medicine service for evaluation and follow up. 3). Although there are several barriers for developing vaccines and other measures for pregnant women, these barriers are surmountable with concerted efforts and leadership. Discussion: 1). Women with suspected or confirmed ZIKV infection should be monitored closely, with serial ultrasonography to evaluate for signs of placental insufficiency, given the risks of fetal death and intrauterine growth restriction. 2). All pregnant women who have potentially ben exposed to ZIKV should be revered to their local maternity unit for 4-weekly fetal ultrasound scan (USS) examinations. 3). No specific antiviral treatment is available for zika virus disease. Key words : zika virus, pregnancy
