Q.

CMV - low muscle tone?

My daughter has hearing loss due to CMV. She also has low muscle tone, could that be related to impairment of neurological development due to the CMV?

Paediatrician

Yes this is possible. I presume that your daughter has had a develpmental assessment by a paediatrician. It would be best to see a paediatric neurologist.There are experts in all the main centres in SA.
