Write-up: Received her 2nd (In the set of three) IM injection in her left upper arm while standing in the doctor''s office. She was unaffected initialy and left the office walking and talking and in no apparent distress. Immediately upon exiting the docor''s office however she lost consciousness and collapsed in the hallway, striking her head on the tile floor. She regained consciousness immediately but complained of dizziness and head pain. She was removed back to the doctor''s office where her vital and neuro signs were assessed. Her vital signs were BP 110/70, pulse 72, resp 20; there were no postural changes to her blood pressure.Her neuro exam was also unremarkable; PERLA, hand grasps equal and she was completely orientated to person, time and place. As she is diagnosed with a rare bleeding disorder, Factor 7 deficiency, a call was placed to her hemotologist to determine further treatment. This physician felt that a CT scan of her head was in order due to her continued complaints of head pain and dizziness. She was then taken to another hospital where the CT scan was performed. She was then directed back to the pediatrician''s office where we waited for her test results. The radiologist called to report a negative finding and was discharged home with 48 hour head trauma precautions. 24 hours later her headache was much improved and the dizziness has disappeared.
