Congenital rubella syndrome

Summary of Congenital rubella syndrome
Congenital rubella syndrome can occur in a developing fetus of a pregnant woman who has contracted rubella, usually in the first trimester. Infants are not generally affected if rubella is contracted during the third trimester.  The classic triad for congenital rubella syndrome is: sensorineural deafness, eye abnormalities—especially retinopathy, cataract, and microphthalmia, congenital heart disease—especially pulmonary artery stenosis and patent ductus arteriosus.
