2002 Oregon CD Statistics: Measles

 


 

Measles is an acute, highly communicable viral illness, known for its red, blotchy rash that starts on the face and then becomes generalized. The rash is preceded by a febrile prodrome that includes cough, coryza, and conjunctivitis, and sometimes photophobia and Koplik spots. Diagnosis is confirmed by the presence of IgM antibodies in sera (in a patient who has not recently been immunized).

Measles is no longer endemic in the United States; cases are occasionally imported. There were no cases of measles last year in Oregon, and the risk of exposure to measles in Oregon remains low.
