The growing number of paediatric immune deficiency virus ( HIV ) infections has raised some problems about the appropriate policies for vaccinations. Some aspects must especially be pointed out: 1) the possible severe side—effects as well as disseminated infection caused by live vaccines in immunodeficient subjects; 2) the excessive stimulation of T Lymphocytes by both live and inactivated vaccines, with the possibility to accelerate the course of HIV infection; 3) the capacity of HIV-infected children to respond properly to immunisation; 4) the course of vaccine-preventable-diseases in HIV-infected children.
