Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Hepatitis A and B vaccination are generally very well tolerated. However, exceptional cases of arthritis and systemic diseases have been reported after hepatitis B vaccination.

CASE REPORT:

The authors report a case of adult Still's disease apparently triggered by hepatitis A and B vaccination. The patient was a 38-year-old woman who presented with fever, hepatitis, pneumonitis and neurologic symptoms, compatible with the diagnosis of adult Still's disease.

DISCUSSION:

The authors discuss the rarity of systemic diseases triggered by such vaccination, the link between hepatitis B virus and some vasculitis, and the possibility for viral bacterial infections to trigger adult Still's disease.
