Abstract:

In the present study was investigate that the seroprevalence of IgG rubella antibodies in Indian adolescent girls. Rubella, an acute infection, also known as “German Measles” or three day Measles. It is predominantly a childhood disease. The most common cause of concern in Rubella patients is teratogenicity. This is a more serious problem among pregnant women. If a mother gets infected with Rubella Virus in early pregnancy, the new-born has congenital malformations known as congenital Rubella syndrome. The study was carried at the department of Obstetrics and Gynecology OPD and ward at Meenakshi Medical College Hospital and Research Institute (MMCHRI), Enathur, Kanchipuram, Tamil Nadu, India. The current study was a hospital based cross sectional study. In all the cases the association was statistically not significant (P value>0.05) when Compared with joint family. The odds of Rubella IgG positive was 0.656 times in nuclear family and the association was statistically not significant (P value>0.05) when Compared with number of children in three. The odds of Rubella IgG positive were 1.711 times in only 1 child, the odds of Rubella IgG positive in 2 children was 1.371 times. In the present study we conclude that the statistically not significant association between the socioeconomic status, parents age, father’s education level, father’s employment status, mother’s education level, mother’s employment status and Rubella IgG status.
