Write-up: My daughter received her first dose of Gardasil on April 19, 2007 she felt feverish minutes after and developed a sore throat the same day. The next day she complained of a headache and contined to complain of headaches for the next 2 months. Also my daughter had a large decrease in appetite, dizziness, nausea and fatigue that she had never felt before. On June 13, 2007 my daughter had the second dose of Gardasil. She again felt feverish, tired and complained of a sore throat once again. The headaches increased within a few days of the second shot. She also told me she felt "slower" than normal and that she had to think about things before doing them, like typing and using her cell phone. On July 1, 2007 my daughter said she had a "horrible" headache, with in 15 minutes of saying this she fainted and stopped breathing. I had to give her mouth to mouth to get her breathing again. My daughter then had 2 back to back seizures. Her entire body became rigid with her hands and arms raising and all her muscles contracting. Her eyes seem to pop out of her head. She began to choke and was unable to breath. I again gave her a breath of air and she then began to vomit and a few minutes later she came to. An ambulance took her to the hospital where a cat scan, MRI/MRA and EEG tests were negative. Blood work showed a slightly raised potassium level and small amounts of Vicodin (last dose taken 3 days before seizure) which she was taking for an unrelated arm injury. Urine tests were also normal and a strep test was negative. There is no family history or seizures and my daughter was healthy until she received the Gardasil shots. 07/16/2007 MR received for o/n hospital stay 7/1/2007 for c/o generalized tonoclonic seizure activity seen after pt fell to floor. Pt c/o post-ictal H/A as well as H/A prior to seizure. PE WNL. Neuro consult with Impression of new Onset Seizure Disorder, etiology not clear.
