Clinical Approach to Skin Eruption and Measles: A Mini Review


Ayse Batirel and Mehmet Doganay

Different etiologic agents or diseases may cause similar types of skin eruption or a specific disease may present with different types of skin eruptions. Because of a wide spectrum of causes of generalized skin eruption, differential diagnosis poses a challenge to physicians. Viral infections more often cause symmetrical rashes widely distributed all over the body which are self-limited and usually last up to one week. Most common causes of maculopapular rashes are viral exanthems and drug reactions in children and in adults, respectively. Measles seems to be controlled in industrial countries with the strict vaccination; it is still endemic/epidemic in developing countries. Measles is re- emerged in some countries where measles was controlled before for the reason of uncontrolled migration, fighting, poverty, infrastructure in health service. In this paper, we aimed to review clinical approach to skin eruption and measles briefly.
