Write-up: Information has been received from a physician concerning his daughter (age not reported) with no pertinent medical history or drug reactions/allergies who on an unspecified date was vaccinated with a first and second dose of Gardasil (Lot Numbers not provided). Concomitant therapy included cetrizine hydrochloride (ZYRTEC). Within 2 weeks of the first vaccination, the patient experienced enlarged lymph nodes at different locations (unspecified) on the same side as the Gardasil injection (side unspecified). Medical attention was sought. Outpatient surgery was performed to remove the lymph node (s) after the 1st dose of Gardasil and "it came back reactive". Within 2 weeks of receiving the second dose of the vaccine, the patient developed enlarged lymph nodes on the side of the neck. At the time of reporting the patient had not recovered and additional surgery was planned. The physician felt that the event was serious because outpatient surgery was performed (other important medical event). Additional information has been requested.
