Write-up: Information has been received from a registered nurse, concerning a 19 year old female patient with an Bactrim allergy, who on 29-MAR-2007 was vaccinated IM in the left deltoid, with a dose, 0.5ml, of Gardasil (Lot #654702/0011U). Concomitant therapy included Yasmin. On 03-APR-2007, five days after the vaccine was administered, the patient was seen in the office as she had developed an "allergic reaction to (Gardasil)," with redness around the injection site. Treatment included ice and an antihistamine (unspecified). On 05-APR-2007, the nurse stated the patient was seen again, and the redness had not changed, but the patient then complained of burning in her lower arm, and "numbness past and below her elbow." The nurse reported that Gardasil had been discontinued. At the time of this report, it was unknown if the patient had recovered. Additional information has been requested.
