Abstract

Measles virus was isolated from the middle ear fluid (MEF) of two infant cases of acute otitis media (AOM) associated with measles. This is the first report on the isolation of measles virus from the MEF in patients with AOM, and possibility of the measles virus as a causative agent of AOM was suggested.
