The impact of exposure to measles before 6 months of age has been investigated by comparing survival to 5 years of age for exposed children and controls in an urban (Bandim) and a rural (Quinhamel) area of Guinea-Bissau.
In Bandim, cumulative mortality from time of exposure to age 5 years was 34.4% among exposed children and 9.3% among controls.
In a matched pair analysis, exposed children had a mortality ratio (MR) of 3.80 (95% confidence interval [Cl]:1.42-10.18) compared with controls.
