% of live births with congenital HCMV infection

Fig. 1 Incidence of congenital CMV infection increases with maternal seroprevalence. The incidence of congenital HCMV infection and maternal seroprevalence rates from published studies carried out in North America, Europe, South America, and Africa were plotted as shown. Note that as rate of maternal seroprevalence increases so does incidence of congenital CMV infection, suggesting that a threshold level of immune individuals that will eliminate transmission within these population may not be reached
