Case Reports

We report a clinical case of congenital rubella syndrome, the diagnosis of which was delayed. A mother had rubella symptoms in 8 to 9 weeks of pregnancy but did not consult a doctor. Congenital rubella syndrome was suspected only of a 42-day-old infant. Congenital rubella syndrome was diagnosed by detecting rubella-specific IgM and virus RNA.
