Congenital Rubella Deafness. Pathology And Pathogenesis.
Published 1973 · Medicine
Hearing loss in infants with congenital rubella is a well-documented component of the expanded rubella syndrome. Light microscopic observations of temporal bone pathology in rubella deafness do not explain many of the unique features seen in these patients. Information provided about rubella infection at the cellular level by cellular pathobiologists must be applied to the study of rubella deafness to increase understanding of the mechanisms involved in viral caused hearing loss.
