Write-up: Information has been received from a physician via a company representative concerning a 16 year old female who on 27-MAR-2007 was vaccinated with a first dose of Gardasil (lot # not reported) IM from a single dose vial. On 27-MAR-2007, the patient experienced an injection site reaction almost immediately where the injection site swelled up bright red, like a balloon. Medical attention was sought. The physician reported that they rubbed it and put ice on the area in an attempt to control the swelling. The reporter stated that the physician may have given the patient Benadryl to treat the experience, but was not 100% certain. At the time of reporting, the patient improved and "is fine". Additional information has been requested.
