Write-up: Information has been received from a physician via a company representative concerning a 17 year old who on an unspecified date was vaccinated with Gardasil IM. On approx 07-FEB-2008, "about 3 weeks ago" the patient developed neurological symptoms and was hospitalized for one week. The neurologist at the hospital diagnosed her with Miller Fisher variance of Guillain-Barre syndrome. At the time of reporting the patient "improved but she''s undergoing therapy" and has not recovered. No further information was provided. The reporter felt that Miller Fisher variance of Guillain-Barre syndrome was disabling and required hospitalization. Additional information has been requested. 4/8/08-records received for DOS 2/6-2/12/08- DC DX: Guillain-Barre variant. Developed cough and diarrhea week prior to admission. Also had vomiting and fevers. On morning of admission developed tingling in hands and feet and dysarthric speech, blurry vision and difficulty with walking. Treated with IVIG with improvement of ataxia and dysarthria. CDC''s CISA staff has reviewed this case and concluded that this case is not GBS.
