Write-up: Information has been received from a pharmacist concerning a 62 year old female with no known allergies and a history of shingles who on 16-JUN-2006 was vaccinated SC with a dose of varicella-zoster virus vaccine live. There was no concomitant medication. On 18-JUN-2006, two days after vaccination, the patient developed a swollen tongue. The patient reported that when she woke up in the morning her tongue was swollen and she even had teeth impression on her tongue. The patient was scheduled to see her doctor on 28-JUN-2006 since she was still experiencing the problem. She had no problems breathing and eating. As of 28-JUN-2006, it was reported that the patient was recovering. No product quality complaint was involved. Additional information has been requested. This is in follow-up to report(s) previously submitted on 7/10/2006. Additional information from the pharmacist indicated that the patient''s condition has resolved and the patient is fine. The physician''s office called the pharmacist to report that the patient''s swollen tongue was not due to ZOSTAVAX (Oka/Merck) but due to the patient''s new toothpaste. No further information is available.
