Persistent Zika Virus Detection in Semen in a Traveler Returning to the United Kingdom from Brazil, 2016.
Emerg Infect Dis 2017; 23(1):137-139EI

Abstract

Zika virus is normally transmitted by mosquitos, but cases of sexual transmission have been reported. We describe a patient with symptomatic Zika virus infection in whom the virus was detected in semen for 92 days. Our findings support recommendations for 6 months of barrier contraceptive use after symptomatic Zika virus infection.
