Congenital rubella syndrome with blueberry muffin lesions and extensive metaphysitis.J Clin Diagn Res. 2014 Dec; 8(12):PD03-4.JC
We report a case of Congenital Rubella Syndrome (CRS) in a newborn. The baby had blueberry muffin skin lesions, long bone metaphysitis and congenital heart defects. With this case report we would like to highlight the existence of congenital rubella syndrome in the community, prompt the clinicians to make a diagnosis of CRS in children with suggestive clinical signs, and to create awareness against this vaccine- preventable disease and consideration to include MMR vaccination in nation immunization schedule.
