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 […]


Absence of antibodies to HTLV-III in health workers after hepatitis B vaccination. “A proportion of the plasma for the triply inactivated, plasma-derived hepatitis B vaccine produced in the United States is obtained from homosexual men. Because homosexual men are a high-risk group for the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), concern has emerged that the vaccine could […]

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), […]


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/ — […]

Ischaemic stroke and influenza A H1N1 vaccination: a case report. “We report a 75-year-old male patient who suffered posterior circulation ischaemia after influenza A/H1N1 vaccination. Vaccination provokes a variable magnitude of inflammatory and immunological response that modifies the risk for ischaemic stroke. Whereas a causal relation between vaccination and ischaemic stroke is still unsettled, an […]
