Synopsis

Congenital rubella (German measles) is caused by maternal rubella virus infection typically during the first trimester. Rubella is a togavirus RNA virus. The disease is rare in the U.S. due to mandated vaccination. The major impact of rubella is on the fetus and is one of the TORCH (toxoplasmosis, other [bacterial diseases, sepsis, syphilis], rubella, cytomegalovirus [CMV], and herpes simplex virus [HSV]) diseases.

Congenital rubella causes microcephaly and growth retardation, hepatosplenomegaly and a host of other complications in the newborn. Cataracts, patent ductus arteriosus, pulmonic stenosis, and deafness all can be seen.
