Breast milk as a possible route of vertical transmission of dengue virus?Clin Infect Dis. 2013 Aug; 57(3):415-7.CI
We report a case of vertical transmission of dengue infection. The virus was detected and quantified by reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction in sequential blood samples from mother and child as well as in breast milk, but not in cord blood. This case poses questions about the risk of breastfeeding transmission of dengue virus.
