Fungal Nail Infections: Spectrum of Aetiologic Agents and Pattern of Lesions

ABSTRACT

Objective: The aim of the study is to stand out the measles which is a highly contagious re-emerging viral illness and may cause heavy complications in susceptible population.

Methods: This retrospective study was conducted on patients who were diagnosed with measles in the department of Infectious Diseases, Erciyes University Hospital, between January 2013 and February 2014. The diagnosis of measles was confirmed by measles specific immunoglobulin M (IgM) antibody positivity in serum sample.

Results: Nine patients were included the study. Three patients had a co-morbid condition including hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), pregnancy and diabetes mellitus. Four of the patients had hepatitis and one of them had pneumonia as a complication.

Conclusion: Susceptible population, especially immunocompromised people are still at risk about measles. Adher­ence to universal vaccination programs is determinative in terms of breaking out of an outbreak. J Microbiol Infect Dis 2016;6(1): 19-22
