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), […]

Ampiginous choroiditis following quadrivalent human papilloma virus vaccine “A 17-year-old female was referred for new-onset vision loss in both eyes 3 weeks after being vaccinated with the quadrivalent HPV vaccine. A standard dose of 0.5 ml was injected intramuscularly into the left deltoid without any resulting skin reaction. Her medical history was significant for depression […]

🛑 Adverse events associated with childhood vaccines other than pertussis and rubella. Summary of a report from the Institute of Medicine. “The committee found that the evidence favored acceptance of a causal relation between diphtheria and tetanus toxoids and Guillain-Barré syndrome and brachial neuritis, between measles vaccine and anaphylaxis, between oral polio vaccine and Guillain-Barré […]

Cardiovascular

Acute fulminant myocarditis after diphtheria, polio, and tetanus vaccination. “We report an infant case of acute fulminant myocarditis which occurred after administration of a diphtheria, polio, and tetanus vaccination. Fever and dyspnea developed after the vaccination. Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation was used for intractable cardiogenic shock. The patient survived the extracorporeal support, but poor ventricular contractility […]
