Fever and Rash

Measles (rubeola) in the 21st century
A clinical syndrome characterized by fever, malaise, coryza, cough, and rash. Death is rare, usually from pneumonia or encephalopathy.
It is highly contagious and was once considered “as inevitable as death and taxes.”
Because of aggressive vaccination programs in the U.S. starting in the late 1980’s, case reports have fallen from 250,000 in 1990 to a provisional 105 cases in 2003.
