The goal of this case report is not only to describe a case of congenital rubella syndrome that is currently rarely seen in the Czech Republic but also to emphasize the importance of vaccination against rubella. Rubella usually occurs in susceptible children as a mild illness with rush. Its association with abortions and severe congenital disabilities was noticed in the 1940s. Since that time, efforts have been made to develop a vaccine against rubella to prevent congenital rubella syndrome.
