Acta Paediatr. 1992 Sep;81(9):707-8. doi: 10.1111/j.1651-2227.1992.tb12341.x.


A newborn with cytomegalovirus disease with cerebral involvement was treated with ganciclovir for 21 days. The treatment resulted in only temporary cessation of virus shedding in the urine and probably had no ameliorating effect on the long-term clinical outcome.
