IF ONLY THERE WERE SOME WAY TO KILL LARGE NUMBERS OF MOSQUITOES INEXPENSIVELY: Zika Images Show ‘Worst Brain Infections That Doctors Will Ever See’

A series of medical images published Tuesday offer the most complete picture, so far, of how the Zika virus can damage the brain of a fetus.

“The images show the worst brain infections that doctors will ever see,” says Dr. Deborah Levine, at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, who contributed to the study. “Zika is such a severe infection [in fetuses]. Most doctors will have never seen brains like this before.”

The images — published in the journal Radiology — are part of a special report put together by neurologists in Boston and doctors in northeastern Brazil who care for babies with Zika infections.

“Our goal is to illustrate for heath care professionals around the world what they could expect to see with a Zika infection during pregnancy,” Levine says.
