Name That Disease Pop Photo Quiz: Be a Child's Shot@Life



Here's one for those of you who never made it to med school (i.e. most of us).  Identify the disease pictured below....and no, it's not one of my kids or relatives.  Not this time.   





Chicken Pox?
Mumps?  
Contact dermatitis?
Aggressive Ringworm?
Elephant Man's Disease?
Shingles?

Well it rhymes with....

Okay, it's measles. By the way, in 2000 measles was eliminated from the United States according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In 2011 the CDC reported there were 17 outbreaks and 222 cases of the disease.  Just so you know.
