This study includes a total of 342 infants suspected of having congenital infections from January 1991-December 1993. Serum samples of these infants were tested for rubella specific IgM antibodies by μ ELISA. Of the total 342 infants, 52 (15.2%) were found to be positive for IgM antibodies to rubella virus. The commonest clinical presentation in infants with IgM antibodies to rubella virus was bilateral congenital cataract and hepatosplenomegaly.
