Abstract

An infant boy with a congenital immunodeficiency had fatal disseminated measles after administration of a live attenuated measles vaccine. This rare complication was confirmed with molecular virologic techniques. Although efforts to expand availability of vaccinations are critically important, caution is warranted in children with potentially severe immunologic dysfunction.
