It can be passed to the fetus in utero and may cause miscarriage, stillbirth or serious neonatal disease characterized by hepatosplenomegaly, purpura, encephalitis and microcephaly with learning disability, or death. In adults it causes illness similar to infectious mononucleosis and pneumonia. The virus is a serious threat to immunocompromised individuals.
