Write-up: Information has been received from a health authority concerning a 2 year old male with Wolf-Hirschhorn Syndrome, a disease with a defection in chromosome no. 4 and epilepsy who on 1/19/95 was vaccinated SC with MMRII. Two days later on 1/21/95, the boy was found dead in his bed. It was reported that 35% of children with Wolf-Hirschhorn Syndrome will die before the age of 2 years. There was no indication per autopsy, of any other explanation for his death. The reporter felt that it was unlikely that the sudden death related to Wolf-Hirschhorn Syndrome was related to therapy with MMRII. No further information is available.
