CHICAGO A case study of a stillborn baby whose Brazilian mother was infected with Zika raises suspicions that the virus may be capable of doing more damage to fetal tissue than previously thought, researchers said on Thursday.
The study showed the baby's brain was absent, a condition known as hydranencephaly. Instead of tissue, the brain cavities were filled with fluid. The baby also had abnormal pools of fluid in other parts of its body.
