TUNCEL, Tuba; SANCAKLI, Ozlem  and  OZDOGRU, Ece. Successful administration of measles-rubella-mumps vaccine by graded challenge in a case with anaphylaxis after prior vaccination. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2017, vol.115, n.2, pp.e89-e91. ISSN 0325-0075.

Egg allergy is one of the most common food allergies during childhood along with cow's milk allergy. The measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine is included in the pediatric immunization schedule and contains egg protein. The currently accepted opinion is that the MMR vaccination should be done in a single dose under medical observation in patients with egg allergy. Although it is reported that the MMR vaccine is safe for that patients, there are some patients who developed anaphylaxis. Generally, the development of anaphylaxis after the previous vaccination is reported as a contraindication. We present a successful administration of MMR vaccine by gradually increased doses for a patient who developed anaphylaxis after the previous vaccination.

Keywords : Anaphylaxis; Child; Egg allergy; Measles-mumps-rubella vaccine.
