Measles is a highly contagious, acute viral illness that can lead to serious
complications and death. Although measles elimination was declared in the
United States in 2000, importations of measles cases from endemic areas
of the world continue to occur, leading to secondary measles cases and
outbreaks in the United States, primarily among unvaccinated persons.
To update national measles data in the United States, CDC evaluated cases
reported by states from January 1 through May 23, 2014. A total of 288
confirmed measles cases have been reported to CDC, surpassing the
highest reported yearly total of measles cases since elimination.
