A. WHITTINGHELL, M.D., Montana Medical Association THE OFTEN HEARD statement "we all must have the measles—so why wor ry about the disease" is true, but as in many other things we can try to have the disease at an optimum time I and under ideal circumstances. Measles, which is also known as red measles, hard measles, and ten-day measles, is one of the acute contagious diseases of childhood. It is caused by a virus infection and after one attack we are permanently protected from a second attack. The usual case of measles starts as common cold, but the temperature goes higher—usually to 103 degrees to 105 degrees. A severe cough develops and after several days a red rash ap pears. During the disease the child ap pears very ill and is most uncomfort able. After a week of the high tem perature the rash begins to disappear and complete recovery is the usual out come. a Complications However, other things may happen to the child with measles. An infection of the ears and throat may develop and, while it can usually be controlled I with medicine,, it does add to the misery of the already sick child. Pneumonia, which may accompany measles, can be fatal in small infants and is a serious complication in older children. The complication that, luckily, is not common is encephalitis or brain fever. Fifty per cent of the children with en cephalitis die and of those that recover many are left with permanent brain damage. We must remember that only a small per cent of children develop these complications and we do have a way to prevent or to lessen the course of the disease. Gamma globulin, a substance made from blood, can prevent or modify measles. If given early after exposure to a case of measles it is possible to prevent the disease completely. This should be done in all children from six months to three years of age and in all sick or weakened children, as this is the age group in which the complica tions are most common and most serious. Prevents Complications If gamma globulin is given later aft er exposure it will modify the disease and does help to prevent the complica tions. This should be done in older children, as having the mild form is much easier on the child and also hav ing the mild form will give the child as much protection against second at tack as having the severe attack. Of course, there will always be many cases of measles that do not receive gamma globulin, but they will be most ly in older school children as we can not control their exposures. But in the younger age group great effort should be made to obtain gamma globulin. Methuselah Methuselah ate what he found on his plate. And never, as people do now. Did he note the amount of the calory count; He ate it because it was chow. He wasn't disturbed as at dinner he sat. Devouring a roast or a pie. To think it was lacking in granular fat Or a couple of vitamins shy. He cheerfully chewed each species of food. Unmindful of troubles or fears Lest his health might be hurt By some fancy desert; And he lived over nine hundred years.
