ABSTRACT
A serological diagnosis of anti Rubella and anti Cytomegalovirus ( IgM & IgG) in women specimens 178 (72 pregnant and 106 non pregnant, 19-39 years old) using enzyme linked fluorescent assay (ELFA) .The results were 3 samples (1.6%) positive for anti Rubella Igm, antibodies and 18 samples (10.1%) positive for anti Rubella IgG, and only 5 samples (2.8%) positive for anti cytomegalovirus IgM antibodies and 24 samples (13.4%) positive for anticytomegolo virus IgG antibodies. In Conclusion, all the women with positive anti Rubella IgM and anti CMV IgM antibodies were correlated with recent and primary infection by each of two viruses. Also women with positive anti Rubella IgG and anti CMVIgG were correlated with current or convalescent infection by each two viruses; this infection may be confirmed by IgM and IgG avidity test or viral culture.
