Write-up: Information has been received from a nurse concerning her 17 year old daughter with asthma who on 8/22/06 was vaccinated IM with HPV rL1 6 11 16 18 VLP vaccine (0.5ml). On 8/23/06 the patient developed a swollen thumb and her palms became red and hot. The patient later developed a tightness in her chest. The patient was immediately taken to a physician (an allergist who was the mother''s employer) who immediately gave the patient a huge dose of cetirizine hydrochloride and acetaminophen as an intervention. The patient was not hospitalized and did not got to the emergency room. It was unknown if the affected site was the same arm that the vaccine was given in. The patient subsequently recovered from the red and hot palms, swollen thumb, and chest tightness on an unspecified date. The red and hot palms, swollen thumb and chest tightness were felt to be other important medical events. Additional information has been requested.
