Abstract

Four infants developed Gianotti-Crosti syndrome (GCS) 6 to 8 days after immunization. Subsequent booster vaccinations were well tolerated. Different types of viral infections have been implicated in the pathogenesis of GCS. The occurrence of GCS after vaccination is rarely described in literature. We suggest that vaccination may be a relevant etiologic factor and should be considered in infants presenting with GCS.
