Complications from measles.
Measles is certainly unpleasant, but it can also be quite dangerous.
As many as one in three people with measles develop complications to include pneumonia, miscarriage, brain inflammation, hospitalization and even death.
Infants under one year of age, people who have a weakened immune system and non-immune pregnant women’s are at highest risk of severe illness and complications. One out of 1,000 people with measles will develop inflammation of the brain, and about one out of 1,000 will die.
