Anne Van Eldere, Thomas Hendrickx, Julie Busschaert, Paul De Munter, Rik Schrijvers, Chris Verslype and Wim Laleman

We report a case of a Yellow Fever Vaccine-Associated Viscerotropic Disease Adverse Event (YEL-AVD) in a young female, who presented to the emergency ward with fever, jaundice, acute kidney failure and thrombocytopenia. Diagnosis was made based upon diagnostic criteria proposed by The Brighton Collaboration Viscerotropic Disease Working Group. YEL-AVD is a very rare but potentially life-threatening acute infection of liver and other vital organs resembling naturally acquired yellow fever disease. Awareness of this rare complication is pivotal in its diagnosis.
