Write-up: Information has been received from a nurse practitioner concerning an 18 year old female who on 29-JAN-2007 at 10:20 am was vaccinated intramuscularly in the right deltoid with the first dose of Gardasil (lot# not provided). On 10-APR-2007 at 14:30 the patient was vaccinated in the right deltoid with the second dose of Gardasil (lot# 03480). On 10-APR-2007 three to four hours post vaccination the patient experienced a swollen throat and had a hard time breathing. The patient was seen in the emergency room due to the severity of the experience. The patient complained of a "feeling of choking," slight nausea with no emesis. The patient reported that no other people in her home were ill with any sickness and she had no known allergies. A quick strep test and throat culture were both negative. The patient was treated with ibuprofen 600 mg, PO every eight hours as needed as well as salt water and loratadine as needed for discomfort. Subsequently, on 12-APR-2007 the patient recovered from the experience.
