Rubella and rubeola were once commonly thought of as childhood diseases. In the last few decades, these illnesses have been largely brought under control in developed nations through widespread vaccinations. In developing areas, however, these viral infections still pose a threat to children and adults alike. Although both diseases are known commonly as the measles, the viruses that cause them are not closely related. ""German measles"" (rubella) is caused rubivirus, and the red measles (rubeola) is caused by morbilivirus. ""Rubella and Rubeola"" takes a look at the history, pathology, potential complications, prevention, and treatment of these diseases.The chapters include: An Ancient Plague; Viral Diseases; Rubeola: The Red Measles; Rubella: The ""German Measles""; Epidemiology; and, Diagnosis, Treatment, and Prevention.
