We report two otherwise healthy patients, a 9-yr-old boy in Iran with severe measles vaccine disease at 1 yr and a 14-yr-old girl in Brazil with viscerotropic disease caused by the YF vaccine at 12 yr. The Iranian patient is homozygous and the Brazilian patient compound heterozygous for loss-of-function IFNAR1 variations. Patient-derived fibroblasts are susceptible to viruses, including the YF and measles virus vaccine strains, in the absence or presence of exogenous type I IFN. The patients’ fibroblast phenotypes are rescued with WT IFNAR1. Autosomal recessive, complete IFNAR1 deficiency can result in life-threateni...

CONCLUSION: Although being a specialized service linked to a university hospital, vaccination coverage and patients ’ awareness rates proved to be below the desirable level. Vaccination and recovery of the immunization history is recommended immediately after the diagnosis of IBD, regardless of the use of biological agents. Those findings support the need of implementing hospital guidelines and constantly verifying its application by the multidisciplinary team in specialized services in IBD.RESUMO CONTEXTO: No tratamento de doen ças inflamatórias intestinais (DII) são usados imunossupressores e a...
