Congenital cytomegalovirus infection or simply putting it as CMV infection. It is one of the most common viral infections that can happen to people of all ages. If a woman is pregnant and she gets infected, then this virus may also get passed to her newborn. Individuals who're suffering from this viral infection mostly suffer from hearing loss as its effect. Just like it happened with Dawson Shull. The 10-month-old baby, who was born in May 2016 in North Carolina, US, also suffered a CMV infection or congenital cytomegalovirus since his birth. 

It means he had a sensual hearing loss. Thanks to our developments in science and technology, that introduced a hearing device which can act as an aid for people who're facing the CMV infection. In a life-changing treatment, he was fitted with a hearing apparatus. And what happened next is a story to which all of us would relate.  

Let's have a look!

He has had cochlear implants, which installs an electronic medical device on the ear and helps in replacing the function of a damaged inner ear. It's unlike those hearing aids which make sounds louder. These implants aren't major operations, but this one was quite difficult as it was performed on the 10-month-old baby.
