Serologic Testing for Rubella
The graph on this slide further emphasizes the significant decrease in the incidence of Rubella. This graph shows that as of 2003, the incidence was well below the 1 case per million population threshold in the United States. As I’ve mentioned, this public health achievement has a significant impact on the way that we should approach laboratory testing for Rubella and importantly how results should be interpreted. Let’s return to our patient case to illustrate this point.
