ACEP Develops Measles Fact Sheet, Resource Page


The United States has experienced a record number of measles cases (Rubeola) in 2014 (more than 600 patients), which is the greatest number in more than 14 years. This virus represents a challenge to Emergency Medicine because it is highly infectious and has been rarely seen in Emergency Departments in the recent past. ACEP developed a Fact Sheet about this disease for a review of its presentation, clinical course and implications for your Emergency Department. Visit acep.org/measles for more information and for new resources added as needed.
