Excerpt
The disease Measles is diagnosed clinically on rash and fever (>38.5oC) illness. The three other symptoms for diagnosis of measles are cough, conjunctivitis, and coryza (runny nose). Koplik spots on the buccal mucosa are found early in the illness. A characteristic red, spotty rash appears on the third to seventh day, beginning on the face, becoming generalized, lasting four to seven days and sometimes ending in branny desquamation. The disease is more severe in infants and adults than in children. Poor nutritional status (especially vitamin A deficiency) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection increase the risk of severe disease, complications, and death.
