Measles: A Dangerous Vaccine-Preventable Disease Returns

Amy Porter et al. Cleve Clin J Med.

Abstract

Although a safe and effective vaccine has been available for over 6 decades, vaccine hesitancy in the United States and social and political unrest globally have led to undervaccination. As a result, in recent months, vaccine control of measles has been threatened with an alarming upswing in measles cases nationally and internationally. Here, we review the disease and its management in view of recent outbreaks.
