Rubella is another term for German measles, an acute viral illness that starts as an upper respiratory infection and evolves into a generalised rash. Immunisation is advisable (MMR vaccine). Testing for Rubella antibody titres is performed routinely in pregnant females as a check for German measles immunity.
