Mental nerve neuropathy as a result of hepatitis B vaccination.

Author information

Department of Rheumatology, CHU Dijon, France.


We describe a 20-year-old woman who presented with polyarthralgia and sensory neuropathy, including mental nerve neuropathy. The symptoms were attributed to hepatitis B vaccination. This unusual cause of mental nerve neuropathy has not been previously described. However, as the use of hepatitis B vaccination is growing, adverse side effects, including mental nerve neuropathy, should be observed with an increased frequency.
