Abstract EN

Measles is a highly contagious infectious disease.

Despite aggressive national initiatives to eradicate measles, outbreaks have occurred in recent years.

We report three infants who presented to a tertiary care hospital in Muscat, Oman, in 2019 with measles and then developed pneumonitis, received intensive care treatment and made full recoveries.

Infants can have an atypical presentation and develop severe symptoms.

Pneumonitis is a serious complication and the management strategies are controversial.

The early detection of measles and isolation of affected individuals play major roles in the elimination of measles outbreaks.
