B05.4 is a billable ICD-10 code used to specify a medical diagnosis of measles with intestinal complications. The code is valid during the fiscal year 2023 from October 01, 2022 through September 30, 2023 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Exanthem due to measles virus
- Measles with complication
- Measles with intestinal complications
- Measles-. a highly contagious infectious disease caused by morbillivirus, common among children but also seen in the nonimmune of any age, in which the virus enters the respiratory tract via droplet nuclei and multiplies in the epithelial cells, spreading throughout the mononuclear phagocyte system.
- Measles Vaccine-. a live attenuated virus vaccine of chick embryo origin, used for routine immunization of children and for immunization of adolescents and adults who have not had measles or been immunized with live measles vaccine and have no serum antibodies against measles. children are usually immunized with measles-mumps-rubella combination vaccine. (from dorland, 28th ed)
- Measles virus-. the type species of morbillivirus and the cause of the highly infectious human disease measles, which affects mostly children.
- Measles-Mumps-Rubella Vaccine-. a combined vaccine used to prevent measles; mumps; and rubella.
- Rubella-. an acute infectious disease caused by the rubella virus. the virus enters the respiratory tract via airborne droplet and spreads to the lymphatic system.
- Rubella virus-. the type (and only) species of rubivirus causing acute infection in humans, primarily children and young adults. humans are the only natural host. a live, attenuated vaccine is available for prophylaxis.
- Subacute Sclerosing Panencephalitis-. a rare, slowly progressive encephalitis caused by chronic infection with the measles virus. the condition occurs primarily in children and young adults, approximately 2-8 years after the initial infection. a gradual decline in intellectual abilities and behavioral alterations are followed by progressive myoclonus; muscle spasticity; seizures; dementia; autonomic dysfunction; and ataxia. death usually occurs 1-3 years after disease onset. pathologic features include perivascular cuffing, eosinophilic cytoplasmic inclusions, neurophagia, and fibrous gliosis. it is caused by the sspe virus, which is a defective variant of measles virus. (from adams et al., principles of neurology, 6th ed, pp767-8)
- Viral Fusion Proteins-. proteins, usually glycoproteins, found in the viral envelopes of a variety of viruses. they promote cell membrane fusion and thereby may function in the uptake of the virus by cells.
- Rubivirus-. a genus of the family togaviridae containing only one recognized species, rubella virus. transmission is primarily by aerosolization.

Measles is an infectious disease caused by a virus. It spreads easily from person to person. It causes a blotchy red rash. The rash often starts on the head and moves down the body. Other symptoms include:
- Runny nose
- Conjunctivitis (pink eye)
- Feeling achy and run down
- Tiny white spots inside the mouth
Sometimes measles can lead to serious problems. There is no treatment for measles, but the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine can prevent it.
"German measles", also known as rubella, is a completely different illness.
