Abstract

Rubella, a common viral infection caused primarily by the rubella virus, is still a global public health concern. Every year, about 30000 instances of congenital rubella syndrome are reported in India, according to health ministry surveillance. A case study of a 6-year-old boy with congenital rubella syndrome was presented here. The child presented with classic abnormalities of congenital rubella syndrome like hearing loss, vision problems, heart defects and intellectual disabilities. Among its many manifestations, congenital heart defects are life threatening, this child was planned for surgical correction of above cardiac lesions. Treatment modalities differ in each type of congenital heart defects and its early detection and surgical intervention can reduce childhood mortality and morbidity.
