A special attention in
the embryo damaging should be paid to mother's infections in the first
three months of the intra-uterine development. Mother's infections can
strike many organs of the embryo while a specially sensitive problem is
the one with the sense of seeing. Most frequently these infections are
caused by Toxoplasma gondii, Citomegalovirus, Herpes simplex virus,
Rubella and Varicella Zoster virus.
The herpes simplex virus as the cause of a congenital infection leads to chorioretinitis and keratoconjuctivities while the varicella-zoster virus infection gives rise to chorioretinitis and cataracta.
Key words: conatal infection, toxoplasmosis, cytomegalovirus, rubella, herpes simplex virus, varicella zoster virus
