Perianal Vaccinia With Associated Streptococcal and Staphylococcal Infection

Perianal Vaccinia With Associated Streptococcal and Staphylococcal Infection Abstract A 2½-year-old child and his infant sibling developed febrile perianal cellulitis after the former had received a deltoid smallpox vaccination. Vaccinia virus was isolated from the perianal area in both cases, and histology of the lesions was compatible with cellulitis due to vaccinia virus. Staphlococcus aureus and group A streptococci were also recovered from the lesions. References 1. Weary, P.E., et al: Localized Accidental Vaccinia , Arch Derm 82:804-811 ( (Nov) ) 1960.Crossref 2.

Abstract

Abstract A 2½-year-old child and his infant sibling developed febrile perianal cellulitis after the former had received a deltoid smallpox vaccination. Vaccinia virus was isolated from the perianal area in both cases, and histology of the lesions was compatible with cellulitis due to vaccinia virus. Staphlococcus aureus and group A streptococci were also recovered from the lesions. References 1. Weary, P.E., et al: Localized Accidental Vaccinia , Arch Derm 82:804-811 ( (Nov) ) 1960.Crossref 2.
