Virus peneumonia following measles: a virological and histological study of autopsy material.

Abstract

Adenovirus, measles virus and herpesvirus were found to be responsible for the serious non-bacterial bronchiolar and interstitial necrosis in post-measles pneumonia in underprivlieged non-White children less than 4 years of age in Cape Town. Secondary bacterial bronchopneumonia, possibly antibiotically suppressed, proved to be less important in accounting for the extensive lung damage in 18 fatal cases that were examined virologically and histologically.
