    The child of a woman immunised against rubella presented at 5 months with developmental delay and recurrent infection; she was shown to have congenital rubella. At 15 months she developed acute myelomonocytic leukaemia (AMML). Rubella is difficult to diagnose after immunisation. AMML has not been previously described in association with congenital rubella, as far as is known.
