Vaccinia necrosum after smallpox vaccination for herpes labialis.

Abstract
We have described a patient with vaccinia necrosum after smallpox vaccination for persistent herpes labialis. The patient eventually recovered after surgical resection of the lesion and multiple courses of vaccinia immune globulin and methisazone. This report emphasizes the needless risks of vaccinating patients with herpetic infections.
