    Correct answer:

    Yes, this is measles.

    It's a respiratory tract infection caused by a paramyxovirus. The classical symptoms of measles include four-day fevers and the three Cs — cough, coryza, conjunctivitis, fever, anorexia, and rashes. Koplik's spots seen inside the mouth are diagnostic for measles, but are not often seen. There's a risk of encephalitis.
