Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Gangrene of an extremity is very uncommon in measles, but we have encountered 3 cases. One patient had a peripheral variety with gangrene of the toes, while the other 2 had major vessel thrombosis. Evidence from the literature is advanced to support the hypothesis that disseminated intravascular coagulation on an immunological basis may be an important precipitating factor. Treatment is briefly discussed.
