Congenital rubella syndrome
Congenital rubella syndrome (CRS) is a group of birth defects that can occur in a baby infected with the rubella virus during pregnancy. It generally results from an intrauterine mother-to-fetus transmission of the virus. It is characterized by a triad of symptoms: sensorineural hearing loss, cataracts, and heart defects. Other associated symptoms include glaucoma (increased pressure inside the eyes), mental retardation, cerebral palsy, and joint deformities.
