Arch Neurol. 1982;39(7):426-430. doi:10.1001/archneur.1982.00510190044014

• Transverse myelitis developed in a 50-year-old man 11 days after passive and active rabies immunization. He was treated with prednisone therapy for three weeks and recovered neurologically. The patient's lymphocytes showed no blastogenic response to the vaccine administered. This is the sixth reported case of transverse myelitis caused by duck embryo rabies vaccine.
