Data from a third surveillance system, the Birth Defects Monitoring Program (BDMP), derived from the Commission on Professional and Hospital Activities' survey of hospital discharges of newborns, are not yet available for 1983.
Intrauterine infection can result in miscarriages, stillbirths, and infants born with a variety of defects collectively termed the congenital rubella syndrome (CRS). Data are not available, however, for abortions related to rubella in pregnancy or exposure to rubella.
