PMID:  12174558     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report on a case of an officer cadet who was inadvertently allowed to commence training with a history suggestive of hypersensitivity to tetanus immunisation and who, eventually, successfully underwent a graduated immunisation regimen. This case combines a search for good evidence with the extraordinary complexities of military medical management and the law. It is a lesson in all three.
