ABSTRACT
A definition of the medical term "masked" is presented. Masked refers to being concealed especially as in masked infection. For example, women exposed to rubella during the first trimester of pregnancy may be given immune globulin. This may prevent clinical symptoms of rubella in the mother, yet the fetus may be adversely affected and born with congenital defects. The definition is from the "Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary," published by F.A. Davis Co.
