Title:
High incidence of subcutaneous emphysema in children in a Somali refugee cAMP during measles outbreak.
Authors:
Moons, Peter; Thallinger, Monica
Journal:
The Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal
Abstract:
During an outbreak of measles in a refugee camp in Ethiopia, 9 patients (age range 4 months to 18 years) were diagnosed with subcutaneous emphysema. Incidence of this rare complication of measles in this refugee camp was higher than previously reported. We hypothesize that the high incidence is most likely related to poor physical state of the refugee population with high rates of malnutrition.
