This is a report of a very rare case of congenital rubella syndrome with congenital sensorineural hearing loss, rubella retinopathy, and congenital heart disease with patent ductus arteriosus. After the introduction of the rubella vaccine in 1969, the number of babies born with congenital rubella is much less and rare. Not all the babies born with congenital rubella have the classical triad. Hence, our patient who has all the features of the classical triad is an extremely rare one. The baby underwent surgery for patent ductus arteriosus and cochlear implant procedure for sensorineural hearing loss. She is now under follow-up with us for pigmentary retinopathy.
