On March 1, the Canadian Paediatric Surveillance Program (CPSP) began a new study on Congenital Zika syndrome in infants in Canada following the rising concerns and strong scientific consensus that Zika virus is implicated in congenital abnormalities. A related CPSP study on severe microcephaly was launched nearly a year ago to look at cases of severe microcephaly in Canada from all causes. This new study will focus on a wide range of congenital abnormalities that have been described in infants born to mothers infected with Zika virus. For more information and to report a case, refer to the protocol and case definition.
