With the objective of analyzing the scientific contribution of measles publications and graphing the collaboration networks between countries during the last 20 years. A bibliometric study was conducted between 1999 and 2018 of journals indexed in Scopus. Annual production data were analyzed and a co-occurrence analysis of production and collaboration between countries using VOSviewer was plotted. 587 documents were registered between 1999 and 2018, with a steady trend, the average of annual publications was 29 documents (range 1-44), being 72.4% were original articles. The countries of Brazil (53.3%) and Mexico (17.5%) had greater productivity and collaboration mainly with the United States and the United Kingdom. Measles research in Latin America presents a stationary trend. Brazil and Mexico were the countries with more publications and have greater networks of scientific collaboration with the United States and the United Kingdom.
