WHAT IS RUBEOLA SEROLOGY (MEASLES ANTIBODIES) TEST?

Rubeola is an acute, highly contagious, viral, communicable disease caused by the measles virus of the Paramyxoviridae family. It is transmitted by direct contact with or inhalation of the infected oral or nasal secretions of infected clients. Rubeola is characterized by the appearance of a blotchy red facial rash appearing 3 days after a fever, with progression to a generalized rash lasting about 1 week. Other symptoms include Koplik’s spots in the mouth, rose-coloured maculopapular skin eruptions, photosensitivity, and catarrhal symptoms. Uncomplicated cases are usually self-limiting, but death may occur from complications and in undernourished children.
