Congenital cytomegalovirus infections are rare and only fewer than 10% of congenitally infected infants are symptomatic at birth. In fewer than 1 % of all cytomegalovirus infected neonates, cerebral calcifications mostly localized in periventricular areas, are seen. Some additional cranial and/ or cerebral anomalies and various visceral pathologies may accompany to the disease. The presented case has a typical congenital cytomegalovirus disease with intracranial periventricular calcifications, overlapping of calvarial bones and epileptic attacks. Although the infant had normal ventricular system and low intracranial pressure at birth, hydrocephalus developed in the following months gradually and needed to be shunted.
