Congenital Rubella Syndrome


Recommended Posts

Hi All

I have a newborn with Congenital Rubella Syndrome (IUGR, Cataract, Small ASD, PDA, Thrombocytopenia, Periventricular Calcifications, Sensorineural deafness, Rubella IgM +ve).

I would like to know how long does the thrombocytopenia last. How do I treat it? (Platelet transfusions v/s IV IgG).

When do I start immunisation?

Did you check immune status of the staff caring for this child?

I understand that infants with congenital rubella excrete large amounts of viruses.

There is a national database (in Swedish unfortunately) on infections during pregnancy, www.infpreg.com.

This info on Rubella (in Swedish..) but at the bottom you'll find references which you may find useful.
