The virological examination of 1365 samples taken from 469 children vaccinated against smallpox revealed considerable differences in the frequency and the time of vaccinia virus detection in different clinical forms of postvaccinal pathology as compared with uncomplicated vaccinal process. During the postvaccinal period taking its normal course vaccinia virus was isolated from 7.3% of children only from the pharynx till day 8 following vaccination. In generalized and creeping vaccinia the virus was isolated from 71.4% of children, in postvaccinal encephalitis from 57.1% of children, in vaccinal angina frove-mentioned complications vaccinia virus was detected in the samples obtained from the patients till days 24, 35, 15 and 24 respectively. The etiopathogenetic role of vaccinia virus in a number of postvaccinal complications is discussed.
