DALLAS, Texas (1080 KRLD) – Dallas County health officials are tracking a rare adult case of the measles.

County Health Director Zach Thompson says the 49-year-old man has recovered from the disease seen most often in children. Thompson says it appears to be an isolated case of measles, with no additional signs of infection among people who were in contact with the man.

 

The case is unusual in that the man who contracted measles had not traveled outside the United States.

Most American adults who get the measles contract it while traveling internationally.

Dallas County officials are investigating to find out how the local man got the measles.
