Toddler Infected With Rare Side Effect of Smallpox Vaccine

In a gut wrenching tragedy a U.S soldier father passed on a rare side effect of the smallpox vaccination he had taken, eczema vaccinatum, to his 2-year-old son.//

The boy who is currently being treated at University of Chicago's Comer Children's Hospital has developed a virulent rash over 80 percent of his body.

Eczema vaccinatum is an unusual side effect of the smallpox vaccine that can affect people who receive the shot or their close contacts.

The boy’s condition is reported to be critical and he is on artificial ventilation and life saving drugs.

It's unclear why the father was allowed to have contact with his son, who had a history of eczema, shortly after the vaccination.

The skin condition is a well-known risk factor for eczema vaccinatum, and official guidelines warn that people with eczema should avoid contact with vaccines.

U.S. Army spokesman Paul Boyce says that the army is looking into how this could have happened.

Experts say they know of no cases of eczema vaccinatum since at least 1990, when the military last had a program of smallpox vaccination.

The vaccinia virus in modern smallpox vaccines is closely related to an older form of vaccinia called cowpox, the disease English doctor Edward Jenner used in the late 1700s to develop early methods of vaccination.

The boy has received the primary treatment for eczema vaccinatum, a drug called vaccinia immune globulin, or VIG. The drug came from a stockpile the CDC keeps in case widespread vaccination ever becomes necessary.

He had also got an antiviral drug called cidofovir and the exp
