Write-up: Information has been received from health authorities concerning a 16 year old female patient with a history of appendicectomy who on 16-MAY-2008 was vaccinated with a second dose of GARDASIL (batch number not reported) in the right arm, via intramuscular route. Shortly after vaccination, occurred nausea and headache which resolved spontaneously within a few hours. Two days after occurred paresis and hypoesthesia of the right upper limb where the vaccination was performed. Following the twenty four hours sensitomotor deficiency increased with impossibility to mobilise the right arm, important hypoesthesia for warmth, pain and touch. Only a deep pressure was observed. Ten days later, deficiency started to resolve with still the inability to write. There was also paresthesia type of electric shock and muscular spasms. Electromyography was normal as MRI. On 10-JUN-2008, the patient was recovering from motor and sensitive but there was a presence of hypoesthesia especially at forearm. On 23-JUN-2008 the patient used her arm normally and did not complain anymore. The reporter considered hypoesthesia, paresthesia, muscular spasm, paresis, nausea, headache, mobility decreased and sensorimotor disorder to be disabling. Additional information was not available. Other business partners included are: E2008-06346.
