Carmen SASU, Marius CIUTAN, Simona MUȘAT

Abstract


Measles is still one of the communicable diseases that causes an increasing number of diseases worldwide, being one of the leading causes of mortality, especially among young children. Although measles vaccination has greatly reduced both the frequency of epidemics and mortality, economically underdeveloped countries, with a fragile health system, often lacking sufficient material resources to provide children with an adequate nutritional level and implicitly a proper immune function, faces frequent epidemics and high infant mortality. Although Romania is one of the European countries that continues to fight this disease, the analysis of data on hospitalization of measles cases in the last 5 years indicates a positive trend, both in terms of complicated cases caused by disease, cases requiring hospitalization, their number decreasing constant in recent years, as well as the number of in-hospital deaths which have also decreased in the last period of time
