Rubella syndrome is a rare form consisting of an eruption of typical skin lesions and alterations affecting numerous apparatus and organs of varying severity. The authors report the case of a one-year-old girl with a persistent erythematous-papulous eruption since the age of six months, localised on the limbs and with marked atrophic and cicatricial sequelae. The child also presented the characteristic features of this syndrome: neurosensorial deafness, hepatomegaly, hyperdense areas at an encephalic level, metaphyseal alterations to the long bones of the lower limbs. The mother was infected in the 14 week of pregnancy and had refused abortion in spite of the positive results of funiculocentesis. The main aspects of the syndrome are examined in clinical and histological terms.
