CDC Split Type: WAES0702USA02903

Write-up: Information has been received from a 73 year old female consumer with asthma (diagnosed in 1971), gout (for the past four years since approximately 2003) and a history of shingles who on 22-NOV-2006 was vaccinated with a dose of Varivax. It was reported that the patient''s initial bout with shingles "two years ago" was "very painful and unnerving for her." The patient had a few less painful rounds with it since that initial one, with small blisters on her hip and thigh. In October 2006 the patient "had another bad case" and was treated with acyclovir. The patient reported that she was back in the office on 22-NOV-2006 for a follow up and prescription refill. The nurse practitioner reportedly told the patient about this new wonder drug that would wipe out her shingles. The patient stated that the nurse practitioner "convinced her" by assuring her that she had both of her parents inoculated against shingles the week before. The patient allowed the nurse practitioner to give her the shot that day. The following morning, on 23-NOV-2006, the patient woke with what she thought was the flu, so sick that she wanted to die. In the next few days she really thought that she was "was going to die." The patient reported that she has had shingles since that day and that they settled on her spine next to her tailbone and that she had blisters under the skin that constantly itch. The patient developed small, scaly, itchy patches on her legs and arms that "will not go away.". The patient was using triamcinolone Acetonide USP 0.1% ointment which would dry them partially but they would return the next day. At the time of reporting the patient was on Sulfam + Tri Tab O.Bs, and prednisone 10 mg daily from what her physician diagnosed s viral pneumonia caused by the shingles. The patient reported that she was bedridden for 10 days (considered disabling). The patient states that she "cannot take this any longer" and that her doctor tells her that her nerve endings are damaged along her spine. Her doctor has prescribed her Cymbalta but she states that she is "afraid to take any more meds from this doctor." She is "afraid of the side effects." The patient states that the vaccine "nearly killed me, and I''m not sure it won''t before I''m cured of it - or rather IF I''m ever cured." Additional information has been requested.
