Abstract
Zika virus has recently emerged as new teratogenic agent. Research is drastically increasing to allow a better comprehension of the role of this emerging virus in the induction of fetal cerebral anomalies. Several epidemiological and microbiological aspects may explain a higher virulence of the current strain. Various animal models have been developed and confirm the materno-fetal transmission as well as the induction of cerebral development's disorders. In parallel, various companies are working to develop a vaccine and antiviral medicine against Zika virus. Despite promising results, the road remains long until a vaccine or antiviral medicines are available.
