Abstract

Hepatitis B vaccine has been administered in children and adults routinely to reduce the incidence of the disease. Even though, hepatitis B vaccine is considered as highly safe, some adverse reactions have been reported. A literature search was carried out in PubMed, accessed via the National Library of Medicine PubMed interface, searching used the following keywords: Hepatitis B vaccine and complications from 1980 to 2014. A total of 1147 articles were obtained out of which articles, which discuss the complications occurring orally or occurring elsewhere in the body, which have the potential to manifest orally after hepatitis B vaccination were selected. A total of 82 articles were identified which included 58 case series or case reports, 15 review articles, 4 cross sectional studies, 3 prospective cohort studies, one retrospective cohort study and a case control study. After reviewing the literature, we observed that complications seen after Hepatitis B vaccination are sudden infant death syndrome, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, vasculititis optic neuritis, anaphylaxis, systemic lupus erytymatosus, lichen planus and neuro-muscular disorder. Of these complications, some are manifested orally or have the potential to manifest orally. Although, most of the complications are self-limiting, some are very serious conditions, which require hospitalization with immediate medical attention.

And I got autoimmune neutropenia from the Hepatitis B vaccine. It was self limiting and lasted about six months. A blood test showed that the vaccination hadn't even taken and I am not immune to Hep B. I won't be trying again with the vaccinations though.

My daughter was diagnosed with Graves Disease shortly after having this vaccine. I'm not sure if that triggered it or not. I mostly blame the soy milk that she drank as a baby (which was suggested by her pediatrician). I've read of links to Graves with both of those things, so who knows.

I'm glad the neutropenia resolved, Ann.
