ABSTRACT: A study of Rubella specific IgM serology in pregnant women showed that a significantly higher percentage of women with previous obstetric losses were seropositive compared to those with normal delivery. Although seropositivity was higher in those with premature delivery (PMD), abortions and congenital malformations, it was not significantly different from those with normal deliveries. This study reemphasizes the need for vaccination of prospective mothers - the adolescent girls and also screening of women with recurrent foetal losses.
