    Measles IgG antibodies test is used for the diagnosis of measles or mumps infection. Measles is caused by a virus and spreads from person to person threw saliva and airborne droplets. The doctor may suggest this test if there are any symptoms of measles like fever, cough, runny nose, red, watery eyes, white spots inside the mouth (Koplik spots), and skin rash or if a person comes in contact with someone infected with measles. The presence of IgG antibodies indicates prior exposure to the measles virus through infection or immunization.

    Frequently asked questions

    To take the blood sample, a tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is then asked to make a fist. This helps in the build-up of blood filling the veins and it becomes easy to collect the blood. The skin is cleaned before inserting the needle in the vein in order to prevent bacteria from entering. Needle is inserted into the vein of the arm and the blood sample is collected in the vacutainer.
    The chances of getting reinfection with measles after vaccination are very small but not zero.
    Measles is among one of the most contagious diseases. Infected people can spread measles to others from four days before through four days after the rash appears.
    Although it's often associated with childhood illness, adults can get measles too. People who are not vaccinated are at a greater risk of catching the infection
