A 28 years female pregnant; 15 week +3 days gestational age, G0, P1, A0; presented for routine antenatal care visit in primary health care center. She had done the investigation in privet hospital showing rubella +ve IgM, CMV +ve IgG. Taking full history, the patient had simple flu like illness several weeks ago with no treatment is needed, no recent contact with a case of rubella nor recent vaccination. By examination, the patient is clinically normal. Ultrasound is done, no congenital anomaly, no signs of fetal infection, normal fetal wellbeing. I advise the patient to repeat the TORCH panel in 2 weeks later. The result by now; is showing rubella -ve IgM, CMV +ve IgG. Rubella false positive result can occur that require special attention to avoid termination of healthy pregnancy.
