J Perinat Med 2021 Jul 10;49(6):717-722. Epub 2021 Jun 10.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Hospital de Clínicas, Universidade Federal do Paraná, Curitiba, Brazil.

Objectives: This study aims to detect the SARS-CoV-2 infection prevalence in asymptomatic pregnant women.

Methods: A group of 195 asymptomatic pregnant women who attended the prenatal care outclinic and to the obstetric emergency department was tested concomitantly for SARS-CoV-2 by RT-PCR and serological tests.

Results: The virus was detected by RT-PCR in two (1.02%) cases and 17 (8.71%) patients had antibodies detected by immunochromatographic tests.

Conclusions: Due to the high risk of this emerging infection in the health of pregnant women, fetuses and newborns, we suggest the universal screening of all pregnant women admitted to hospital through the combined method RT-PCR and serological.

Intrauterine Transmission of SARS-CoV-2.

Emerg Infect Dis 2021 Feb 13;27(2):638-641. Epub 2020 Nov 13.

We documented fetal death associated with intrauterine transmission of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2. We found chronic histiocytic intervillositis, maternal and fetal vascular malperfusion, microglial hyperplasia, and lymphocytic infiltrate in muscle in the placenta and fetal tissue. Placenta and umbilical cord blood tested positive for the virus by PCR, confirming transplacental transmission.
