Kawasaki

Bacillus Calmette-Guérin reactivation as a sign of incomplete Kawasaki disease. “An early and specific clinical sign, not included in the classical diagnosis criteria, but that can be very useful in the diagnosis of KD, is the reaction at the Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) inoculation site. We describe a case of a 4-month-old boy, fully immunised, whose […]

Premature Infants

Adverse events following vaccination in premature infants. “Apparent adverse events were noted in 17 of 45 (37.8%) babies: 9 (20%) had major events, i.e. apnoea, bradycardia or desaturations, and 8 (17.8%) had minor events, i.e. increased oxygen requirements, temperature instability, poor handling and feed intolerance. Babies with major events were significantly younger (p < 0.05), […]

Cardiorespiratory

Near miss. — Apnea after immunization of preterm infants. “However, 12 (12%) infants experienced a recurrence of apnea, and 11 (11%) had at least a 50% increase in the number of apneic and bradycardic episodes in the 72 hours after immunization.” #Premature #Cardiorespiratory #Near #Miss #DTP #Hib #Bradycardia #Apnea #Respiratory #Cardiovascular #Vaccine #MedScienceResearch https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/9152284/ — […]

Encephalomyelitis

Note: Also see category “ADEM” (Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis) — Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis associated with oral polio vaccine. “A 27-year-old woman presented with acute paresis after taking an oral polio vaccine (OPV).
