Measles in HIV-infected children in southern Africa
AbstractIn recent years, southern Africa has experienced a widespread measles outbreak. Given the high human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) prevalence in the region, the particular features of measles in HIV-infected individuals are of interest to clinicians, especially as regards children, as are measles immunisation strategies for this population. This review discusses a case of
severe measles in an HIV-infected child in Botswana, focusing on its implications for clinical case management in Botswana and similar settings and for policies on measles immunisation.
