[Cytoplasmic tubuloreticular complexes and nuclear bodies in cells of rubella-infected human embryos and fetuses (author's transl)].

[Article in German]


The range of single or multiple defects which might develop in the human embryo of fetus after an intra-uterine rubella infection has been documented by means of a large number of epidemiological, clinical and pathological investigations. Newborns with congenital rubella carry a number of defects, some of which could be the direct result of a virus-induced, intra-uterine vascular damage. In rubella-infected embryos and fetuses, vascular lesions are the most frequently observed histopathological finding. These changes have already been systematically investigated by means of the light microscope. Ultrastructural data are, however, not available at present.
