With Measles Cases Rising, Pediatrician Turns to VisualDx for Patient's Rash Diagnosis

measles_29595.jpgStephanie B, a pediatrician with the University of Michigan, writes about a time she saw a young patient with a full body rash. With measles cases on the rise, she turned to VisualDx to work out the differential for her patient with possible measles.

"8 month old presenting with rash that started on face and progressed to include the entire body. Patient was on day 8 of amoxicillin. Recent cold symptoms. No fever. No Koplik spots. VisualDx helped me to work through differential diagnosis, including concerns for possible measles."
