Measles, also called rubeola, is a highly contagious viral infection that affects people around the world. Even though an effective vaccine is available and widely used, measles continues to occur even in developed countries.

Measles is transmitted via respiratory droplets, like sneezes. The early symptoms are very similar to symptoms of influenza. This photo gallery shows pictures of typical measles rashes and Koplik spots, a rash inside the mouth that only occurs in measles.
