Write-up: Information has been received from a physician concerning an "over 60" year old female who in approximately December 2006, was vaccinated with a dose of ZOSTAVAX. Subsequently, 3-4 days after receiving ZOSTAVAX the patient developed numbness in her legs, lips and around her mouth, and a fever. The patient "could not walk" due to this event. The patient was referred to a neurologist to rule out Guillain-Barre Syndrome. The patient was also referred to an infectious disease specialist to determine if the event was vaccine related. At the time of the report the patient''s numbness had improved but she was still spiking a temperature of 100-101 degrees. Unspecified "blood work" was performed. The patient was discharged from the hospital after 11 days as an inpatient. There was no product quality complaint involved. No additional information was available. The reporter considered the patient''s events to be disabling and serious for hospitalization. Additional information has been requested.
