Write-up: pt. received TDAP,HPV,VZV and MENING on 3/7/07. Within a week, one of the injections sites swelled,became painful and red. The doctor''s office was notified of this reaction. Within two weeks of injections, both lips swelled for one day. Within 4 weeks of injection, lips cracked and by the fith week after injection pt was hospitalized for severe stomatitis. Please note, the pt has never suffered these symptoms before, nor has she seeked care for this problem prior to this outbreak. Pt became dehydrated and needed i.v. care. Pt had blister type lesions that started on the outside of the lips and continued to spread to the back of the throat. Pt has improved greatly and should have a full recovery. 6/27/07-records received from facility. Oral lesion, virus culture positive for herpes simplex virus. Blood culture no growth. No documentation to support hospitalization. Stomatitis outhreahs regularly meds needed daily, possibly for life. Altered life illness. The doctor wants her to get the other two shots. I think that is negligent! This shot never should have been given with all the others!
