Chikungunya virus is a member of the genus Alphavirus, in the family Togaviridae. Infected mosquitoes can spread the virus to other humans when they bite. The symptoms include fever, petechial or maculopapular rash and arthralgia or arthritis affecting multiple joints mainly in adults. The illness is usually self-limiting and will resolve with time. The time of greatest risk of transmission from mother to fetus appears during birth if mother acquired the disease days before delivery. There are not many reports of confirmed chikungunya infection in newborns. Here we report a neonate infected with Chikungunya virus which was confirmed by ELISA test.
