Write-up: On 8/7/00, the child received his 1st injection of Infanrix. On that date, he also received his 2nd injection of MMRII and his 1st injections of varicella and IPOL. On 8/10/00, the pt experienced left testicular swelling, mild erythema of the left scrotum with generalized tenderness and swelling. The pt walks with legs slightly abducted. The pt''s dx was orchitis. The pt''s mother stated that "we can only conclude that it was a reaction to the vaccine". He was seen by a pediatric urologist who reported "that there had not been a documented case of this type of reaction in a juvenile in over 17 years". The reporter considered the pt''s experience to have resulted in a significant disability. Follow-up information from a nurse, stated "she vaguely recalled this child''s experience and believed he had seen a pediatric urologist who was not the primary physician treating the pt for this experience". The nurse also stated "she thought it was the urologist who felt the child''s orchitis was related to MMRII vaccination, though she was not certain of this". She also stated "that she believed the child walked with his legs abducted due to the testicular swelling and orchitis and this was not a separate experience but again she could not definitively state this without checking the pt''s chart". Outcome of the orchitis was not provided.
