    Rubella, sometimes called “German measles,” is a contagious disease caused by a virus. Unlike measles, rubella almost never causes serious illness or complications in infants and young children. However, rubella infection in pregnant women can cause unborn babies to have serious birth defects with devastating, life-long consequences, or even die before birth.
