Concentrations of IgG, IgA, IgM, albumin, and transferrin as well as titers of antibody against rubella virus were determined in samples of amniotic fluid from five women infected with rubella and in 56 control samples obtained from Rhimmunized women. Rubella virus was isolated from the amniotic fluid of one of the infected women. It was not possible to obtain a prenatal diagnosis of fetal rubella by determinations of concentrations of protein or titers of antibody to rubella in amniotic fluid.
