Resumen

Zika is an infectious disease that continues to pose an enduring threat worldwide. The disease is of particular concern to women of childbearing age, as the virus can cause devastating birth defects or fetal loss if acquired during pregnancy. Clinicians caring for women capable of becoming pregnant must inform women regarding the potential for Zika transmission via mosquito bites in affected regions as well as by sexual contact with exposed partners. Because of the global scope of the disease, clinicians caring for pregnant patients should evaluate for risk of Zika exposure to provide patients guidance in decision making related to virus prevention and testing.
