The virus disease rubella, commonly known as German measles, is particularly dangerous if you are pregnant. Symptoms include fever, a pink rash and swollen lymph nodes. If you get infected the first three months of a pregnancy, it can lead to serious malformations of the brain, eyes and heart of the baby. Some people get the disease in a very mild form so that a diagnosis can not be made. Today, most people get vaccinated against rubella.
