Maternal, fetal, and neonatal outcomes associated with measles during pregnancy: Namibia, 2009-2010.
We report three cases of rubeola during pregnancy complicated by pneumonia. All had bacterial superinfection of the lungs and a clinically mild hepatitis. One woman delivered at term and two underwent successful tocolysis, one of whom had an unexplained stillbirth 7 weeks later. Rubeola virus is not a teratogen, although it has been associated with increased spontaneous abortion and perinatal mortality.
