Abstract

Our objective was to retrospectively describe measles hospitalizations in 52 US children's hospitals. We identified 136 patients hospitalized for measles in 2004-2018; 17% (23/136) had complex chronic conditions, 2 of whom died or were in hospice. Among noncomplex patients only 39% received vitamin A, median length of stay was 3 days and median adjusted estimated costs were $5896.
