Femoral neuropraxia after vaccination in a 3-month-old infant: a case report

Papanna, Madhavan C.; Sundararajan, Sabapathy

Collapse Box


We report an incidence of a 3-month-old infant who developed femoral neuropraxia after vaccination (diphtheria, tetanus and acellular pertussis/inactivated poliovirus/haemophilus influenzae type B vaccine) in the thigh. To the best of our knowledge, femoral nerve injury after vaccination has not been reported in the literature before. However, this baby made good neurological recovery within 8 weeks after vaccination.
