  • Monto Ho


One can define operationally a number of distinct neonatal infections, although there is still lack of consensus regarding terminology. An infection is a virological event documented by isolation of virus or by serologic evidence. More often than not it is asymptomatic, subclinical, or inapparent. When it is accompanied by manifestation of disease, we speak of “symptomatic” infection or infection with disease.
