Abstract

Vaccination with the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine has been suggested to cause autism, as the wide-scale use of the MMR vaccine has been reported to coincide with the apparent increase in the incidence of autism. Although case reports have described children who developed signs of both developmental regressions and gastrointestinal symptoms shortly after MMR vaccination, the literature reveals no convincing scientific evidence to support a causal relationship between the use of MMR vaccines and autism.
