Write-up: Information has been received from a physician concerning an 11 year old female who was the daughter of a nurse that works in his office. On 30-SEP-2006 the patient was vaccinated with a 0.5 ml dose of GARDASIL (lot #654540/0800F). At that same time, the patient received a second dose of FLUMIST. On 01-OCT-2006 the patient had a "funny feeling in her face." By 03-OCT-2006 "her face was crooked on one side and becoming paralyzed." The patient was treated with an unspecified steroid medication and was reported to be "feeling better," but the symptoms were not totally gone. The patient was seen by a neurologist and was diagnosed with Bell''s Palsy. The physician reported that one year ago, the patient was given FLUMIST and had no adverse reactions. At the time of this report, the patient was recovering from the events. The physician reported that it was his opinion that "Bells Palsy was caused by FLUMIST and not GARDASIL." Additional information has been requested.
