Partial third nerve palsy after Measles Mumps Rubella vaccination
Partial third nerve palsy after Measles Mumps Rubella vaccination

Abstract
Background
Measles Mumps Rubella (MMR) vaccination is known to cause some serious adverse events, such as fever, rash, gland inflammation and neurologic disorders. These include third and sixth cranial nerve palsies.

Results
The case reported describes a partial recurrent oculomotor palsy associated with systemic symptoms following MMR vaccination in a healthy young child. The oculomotor palsy did not recover completely during the follow-up.

Conclusions
Most of the times, measles, mumps and rubella cause mild illness and discomfort; but can also have serious or fatal sequelae. MMR vaccination has been proved to be safe and to reduce significantly the number of reported infections due to these viruses. However, significant adverse events can occur and paediatricians and public health operators should be aware of this aspect.

Partial third nerve palsy after Measles Mumps Rubella vaccination
Sir,

Measles Mumps Rubella (MMR) vaccination is known to cause some serious adverse events. These can include fever, rash, gland inflammation and neurologic disorders like epilepsy, encephalitis, aseptic meningitis and autistic disorders [1,2].

The case reported below describes a partial recurrent oculomotor palsy following MMR vaccination in a healthy young child.

Case Report
A 20-month-old Italian boy received a MMR (MMR VAX PRO) vaccine dose according to the normal vaccination schedule. Twenty days later he presented fever and cutaneous rash, which resolved spontaneously in one day, and left eye (LE) eso-hypotropia, which also lasted 24-48 hrs until complete self-recovery. This episode recurred 20 days later: the ophthalmological examination showed a deficit of elevation in adduction of the LE and was diagnosed as "acquired palsy of the inferior oblique muscle" [Fig. ‚Äč[Fig.1].1]. The remaining neurologic examination was normal. EEG, brain MRI with and without gadolinium, blood count, blood chemistry were normal. Serum titres against main viral agents (Citomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr, Herpes Simplex, Varicella Zoster, Papovavirus B19, Influenza, Parainfluenza, Respiratory Syncytial) were negative, except for a positive IgG titre for Rubella virus. A week later the symptoms partially disappeared without any treatment. The following scheduled neurological controls continued to be normal, while the orthoptic examination showed persisting, but inconstant, weakening of LE inferior oblique muscle function. At the last control, when the child was 5 years old, visual acuity and stereopsis tests were normal, but a mild deficit of the inferior oblique muscle function persisted, with orthophoria in primary position.

Have you seen the vitriol of hate that is expressed on Imgur and other sites that post anti vaxxer memes? They want anti vaxxers killed. No questions asked. All because someone might get measles. No mention of the large fund the govt keeps to pay off lawsuits.
