Detection of measles specific IgG in serum was done on 618 samples obtained from Nigerians (aged 11 years or more) resident in Ilorin (urban) and Shao (a suburban outlay of Ilorin).

Significant differences were found between positivity rates in the two locations studied and between the sexes in the urban samples.
