Write-up: Information has been received from a nurse practitioner concerning her 17 year old daughter with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder and a history of shellfish allergy (as a child: outgrew) who in 06-NOV-2006 at 1:00PM, was vaccinated in the left deltoid (previously reported as right deltoid), IM with a first dose of GARDSIL (Lot # 653650/0640F). Her second dose of GARDASIL vaccine (Lot # 653650-0640F) was administered intramuscularly into the right deltoidon 16-January-2007, at 2:00PM. Concomitant therapy included ADDERALL. There was no illness at the time of vaccination. The nurse practitioner reported that 3 days after each dose of GARDSIL vaccine, her daughter developed diarrhea, on 09-NOV-2006 and 19-JAN-2007, respectively. The diarrhea was reported to be "relatively severe and spontaneously resolved" (dates unspecified). On 20-January-2007 at 8:00AM, on the fourth day after the second dose, the patient "developed a rash on her knees and thigh that spread during the day until she was covered in a rash from her neck to her feet." In follow-up, the nurse practitioner confirmed that the patient developed a rash four days post vaccination that covered her legs, trunk, arms and neck. She was treated with BENADRYL and it resolved. The reporter noted that the decision was made to discontinue the series so a third dose would not be given. The patient sought unspecified medical attention. Additional information has been requested. This is in follow-up to report (s) previously submitted on 3/14/2007. Additional information is not expected.
