Write-up: Information has been received from a physician for a case in litigation concerning a 7 year old male who in approximately 1998 was vaccinated with MMR II, also referred to as the "triple measles vaccine" by the physician. The pt presented with a history of recent psychomotor retardation without any associated history or signs of an infectious or neoplastic process. Investigation concluded that the etiology lay in a subacute sclerosing panencephalitic process attributable to the MMR II. The pt manifested no allergies to egg protein and his immediate post vaccination course had been uneventful. There had been no evidence of measles prior to the vaccination and his psychomotor development had been normal until the onset of symptoms. Subsequently, in approximately August 2001 the pt died.
