Write-up: Information has been received from three physicians publishing an article titled "Thrombocytopenia after immunization of children, 1992 to 2001" concerning a 13 month old male who was vaccinated between 1992 to 2001 with MMR II. Subsequently the pt experienced thrombocytopenia and was hospitalized 6 days post therapy with MMR II. The authors reported that the pt was previously well but had fallen down a few stairs three days prior to hospitalization. On the day of admission the pt had vomited and had a seizure. A physical examination was done that revealed the pt to be flaccid and unresponsive. Subsequently, imaging studies of his head revealed a subdural hemorrhage and a blood platelet count of 5x10 to the 9/1. The pt was treated with four units of platelets, one dose of hydrocortisone and two doses of IV immunoglobulin. Within a few hours of being hospitalized the pt died. The authors felt that the cause of death was intracranial haemorrhage nos. No further info is available.
