Calvert, Donald R.
Symptoms and characteristics of rubella (German measles) are listed, including a brief history of the disease. Emphasized are the effects of maternal rubella, particularly if contracted during the first three months of pregnancy. Likelihood of abnormalities of the child are detailed, and resulting educational as well as medical problems are discussed. Social repercussions of these handicapped children are noted. Existing legislation related to the problem is reviewed, and figures presented as supportive information relate to the incidence of rubella-caused handicapped children. (KW)
