If you’re experiencing symptoms like fever, rash,
swollen lymph nodes, or joint pain, a Rubella IgM test may be necessary. It
detects IgM antibodies produced in response to a rubella virus infection.
Elevated IgM levels indicate a recent or acute rubella infection, whereas IgG
antibodies suggest past exposure or vaccination. Accurate diagnosis of rubella
is crucial, especially during pregnancy, as it can lead to congenital birth
defects. Timely medical assessment and appropriate precautions are essential to
prevent complications and ensure proper care.
