ABSTRACT

The micro-organism of measles is yet to be isolated and the effects of its biologic activity await demonstration. The symptoms of the disease are dependent largely on the localization of the morbid process to the mucous membrane of the respiratory tract, and complications of toxic origin are of rather uncommon occurrence, although a considerable number of cases in which cerebral and spinal disorders developed in the course or sequence of measles have been placed on record. For this reason the occurrence of polymyositis and polyneuritis in connection with measles would seem to be worthy of note. In a joint communication Dr. W. Jessen1 reports a case of the former complication and Dr. E. Edens one of the latter. The first occurred in a woman, 32 years old, in whom the rash of measles appeared on the sixth day of an illness, and symptoms suggestive of articular and muscular rheumatism
