TC-83 Venezuelan equine encephalitis vaccine exposure during pregnancy.
A human pregnancy exposed to TC-83 live attenuated Venezuelan equine encephalitis (VEE) virus vaccine resulted in hydrops fetalis and fetal demise. Maternal seroconversion and the finding of a diffuse mononuclear cell infiltrate on postmortem examination are suggestive of a causative role for TC-83 vaccine.
