Measles is a rare communicable disease which may be fatal in renal transplant patients. Herein we present a patient with renal transplantation who had measles and who subsequently developed subacute measles encephalitis 4 months later. We recommend all children with chronic renal failure be vaccinated against measles before transplantation.
