Abstract

An evaluation of human T-cell lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1) infectionamong 6754 pregnant women in Salvador. Bahia. Brazil using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, Western blot analysis, and polymerase chain reaction assay found a rate of infection of 0.84% (57 of 6754 women). Epidemiologic and obstetric data on the HTLV-1-positive pregnant women were analyzed and compared with data on a control group of HTLV-1-negative pregnant women. The mean age of the HTLV-1-positive women was 26.2 years. All were seronegativefor HIV and syphilis. and only 2 reported a past history of sexually transmitted infection and more than 10 sexual partners. Of the HTLV-1-positive women, 88.5% were breast-fed. 4% were bottle fed, and 7.5% did not know. Sixwomen had received blood transfusions, and only I reported intravenous drug use. Fifty-two HTLV-1-positive women could be followed: 45 had full-term deliveries. 5 had premature deliveries, and 2 had abortions. Our results indicate that (1) the frequency of HTLV-1 infection among pregnant women is relatively high in Salvador, Bahia. Brazil: (2) maternal infection was probably acquired more frequently through breast-feeding, but the sexual route was certainly the second most important means of transmission: (3) HTLV-1-positive women had a history of eczema-like infections in childhood more frequently than the control group: (4) HTLV-1 infection did not interfere in the course of pregnancy; and (5) no associated congenital infections were observed in the HTLV-1-positive women.
