This Special Issue will focus on the key contemporary issues surrounding newborn screening for congenital cytomegalovirus (cCMV) infection. These key issues include the various techniques and novel biomarkers available now for newborn screening, the cost effectiveness of screening, policy considerations regarding the addition of newborn screening for cCMV to the Recommended Uniform Screening Panel (RUSP), and legislative mandates requiring the addition of screening to state health department policie. The personal experiences of CMV experts who have successfully implemented screening programs for cCMV, and the perspectives of professionals and families on the ethics and psychosocial aspects of screening newborns for congenital CMV, will be included.
