Write-up: Information has been received from a physician concerning a patient who was vaccinated with a dose of varicella-zoster virus vaccine live instead of varicella virus vaccine live. The patient was supposed to be vaccinated with varicella virus vaccine live to prevent chickenpox. The physician reported that there was no product confusion. There was no product quality complaint involved. Additional information from the physician indicated that the problem with the product confusion was that both of the vaccines have varicella vaccine in one form or another on the product and that caused product confusion for the medica assistant. Additional information has been requested.

Write-up: Information has been received from a 70 year old male physician with no allergies and a history of chickenpox as a child and no recent exposure to chickenpox or herpes zoster and no other medical history who on 10-AUG-2006 was vaccinated in the right upper arm with a 0.5 ml dose of ZOSTAVAX (lot #652966/0623F). There was no concomitant medication. On 10-AUG-2006 and 11-AUG-2006, the patient had erythema at the injection site. On 03-OCT-2006, the patient developed shingles after vaccination. He had four lesions on the left lower anterior abdomen. Three of the lesions were clustered and the one lesion was outward. He described the symptoms as "shingles, unilateral, erythematous papules, and a surrounding pallor-like a halo." He mentioned that he was not experiencing any pain, but there was itchiness involved. Unspecified medical attention was sought. At the time of the report, the patient had not recovered. A product quality complaint was not involved. Additional information was received from the patient who reported that on 05-OCT-2006 he collected and would be submitting lesion (papule) specimens. He had two slides and a cotton swab. He noted that he developed "four itchy papular lesions, three in a cluster and one by itself on the left side - T-11 dermatone." He did not have any pain currently, but would evaluate the pain initially at a three out of a scale of 10. He was very concerned that the vaccination was causing a reactivation of natural VZV disease to present now as herpes zoster or that it was actually causing the herpes zoster. Additional information was received from the patient who reported that the date of onset of the herpes zoster was 03-OCT-2006. The area of involvement included the right lower anterior abdomen at T-11. There were found lesions, three in a cluster and out outlier. His body temperature was noted to be normal. He rated his pain as 3 to 4 on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the most. He had no other systemic symptoms and subsequently recovered. The patient was enrolled in the Varicella Zoster Virus Identification Program to identify if VZV is present and if it is present to identify if it is associated with the wild-type (WT) VZV strain or with the vaccine VZV strain. Results indicated that the specimen was inadequate, negative for B-globin, no strain ID. No further information is expected.
