This 1962 photograph depicted a 70 year-old Cardiff, Wales female, who’d received a smallpox vaccination, and subsequently developed a severe reaction to the vaccine, known as vaccinia necrosum. See PHIL 14251 for a closer view of this vaccinial lesion. This patient had received this vaccination, as a treatment for an indolent oral herpes simplex ulcer (see PHIL 14252), which proved to have been ineffective, and resulted in her development of progressive vaccinia, also known as vaccinia necrosum., and eventually to her death.
