A 12-month-old healthy boy had approximately 30 vesicular skin lesions 24 days after receiving varicella vaccine. Sixteen days later his pregnant mother had 100 lesions. Varicella-vaccine virus was identified by polymerase chain reaction in the vesicular lesions of the mother. After an elective abortion, no virus was detected in the fetal tissue. This case documents transmission of varicella-vaccine virus from a healthy 12-month-old infant to his pregnant mother.

Sunaga Y, Hikima A, Ostuka T, Morikawa A.Acute cerebellar ataxia with abnormal MRI lesions after varicella vaccination.Pediatr Neurol. 1995 Nov;13(4):340-2.PMID: 8771172 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE]
A 2-year-old boy, with the primary difficulties of nausea and vomiting, developed a staggering gait and dysarthria 10 days after varicella vaccination. Magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated multiple areas of high signal intensity in the white matter of the cerebellum, predominantly in the parieto-occipital white matter and both globus pallidi. He did not present any signs of myelitis or encephalitis and thus his cerebellar dysfunction was diagnosed as acute cerebellar ataxia, which is, generally speaking, not an etiologic entity but a clinical syndrome. Magnetic resonance imaging may reveal a variety of abnormalities of the central nervous system in acute cerebellar ataxia.
