Measles is a highly contagious infection whose frequency has been clearly reduced thanks to vaccination. It can rarely lead to complications, which are represented mostly by pneumonia, diarrhea or otitis, less commonly, encephalopathy and hepatitis. Macrophagic activation syndrome is a severe systemic manifestation which can rarely been associated with measles. We present a case of haemophagocytic syndrome caused by measles in a 14-month boy.
