Three pathetic cases of embryopathy due to Rubella seen at the child guidance clinic of Children’s Hospital, Benghazi, and showing lesions affecting C.N.S. and C.V.S. are presented. Like other cases of Rubella ernbryopathy, these three patients were also leading a vegetative existence. Simple amelioration of the existing defect does not provide the answer. It is considered vital to attempt to prevent further incidents from occurring by detection of vulnerable mothers and the introduction of active immunization.
