Although rare, serious adverse effects may be seen after vaccination. Especially, the whole-cell pertussis vaccine has been held responsible for neurological side effects, as the most important problem in vaccination. With the advancement in vaccination technologies, whole-cell pertussis vaccine has been replaced by acellular pertussis vaccine, and neurological side effects have been significantly reduced. Herein, we present a 2-month-old male infant who suffered from generalized tonic-clonic seizures many times, possibly due to acellular pertussis after pentavalent vaccination, including diphtheria, acellular pertussis, tetanus, inactive polio, Haemophilus influenzae type B, and conjugate pneumococcal vaccine (BCG, DaBT-IPA-Hib, CPV).

Keywords: Infant, seizure; pentavalent vaccination.

Aşı sonrası ciddi yan etkiler nadiren de olsa görülebilmektedir. Özellikle nörolojik yan etkilerden tam hücre boğmaca aşısı sorumlu tutulmaktaydı ve aşılamadaki en büyük sorundu. Aşı teknolojilerinin gelişmesi ile birlikte tam hücre boğmaca aşısından aselüler boğmaca aşınına geçilmiş ve nörolojik yan etkiler oldukça azalmıştır. Bu yazıda BCG, DaBT-IPA-Hib, KPA aşıları sonrası, muhtemelen aselüler boğmaca fraksiyonuna bağlı çok sayıda jeneralize tonik klonik nöbet geçiren 2 aylık bir süt çocuğu sunulmuştur.
