Abstract

Two children developed bacterial meningitis within five days of measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) immunisation. Diagnosis was delayed because symptoms were attributed to the vaccine, although both had a raised C-reactive protein. Fever or rash within five days of MMR vaccination are unlikely to be due to the vaccine and a raised C-reactive protein suggests bacterial infection.
