If the infection occurs at 0-12 weeks of conception, there is a 51% chance of effect on the infant. Along with eye problems, mental retardation, deafness, growth retardation and developmental delays, some patient who survive infection, takes birth with congenital heart disease. Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) is the most commonly reported heart problem.
