FIGUEIREDO, Luiz Tadeu Moraes; CARLUCCI, Rita Helena  and  DUARTE, Geraldo. A prospective study with children whose mothers had dengue during pregnancy . Rev. Inst. Med. trop. S. Paulo [online]. 1994, vol.36, n.5, pp. 417-421. ISSN 0036-4665.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0036-46651994000500005.

Dengue congenital disease was not confirmed in 10 children whose mothers had the infection during pregnancy. The fetal sera presented anti-dengue IgG antibodies which progressively declined, and disappeared after 8 months. IgM antibodies to dengue were not observed in the sera. Other normal data suggesting the healthy state of the children included: absence of malformations, pregnancy time, Apgar index, weight, and placenta aspect

Keywords : Dengue; Infecção na gestação; Doença na gestação.
