Baby with Zika-related microcephaly born at New Jersey hospital

A baby girl with Zika virus-related microcephaly was born in New Jersey on Tuesday, hospital officials said. The mother is visiting the United States from Honduras and does not want to be identified. This is the second known case of a baby born with Zika-related birth defects in the United States. The first baby was born in Hawaii. Doctors first examined the mother when she came to the medical center Friday. Ultrasound screening revealed the baby had "significant microcephaly." The baby also had calcification and dilated ventricles in the brain.
