Write-up: Information has been received from a physician, via agency, as part of a business agreement (manufacturer control No. GARD 2009 03 27 LS2), concerning a 23 year old female who in November 2008 was vaccinated with GARDASIL. Concomitant therapy included hormonal contraceptives (unspecified) in the form of a vaginal contraceptive ring. On 26-NOV-2008, a few days after vaccination with GARDASIL the patient died suddenly. The cause of death was attributed to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. It was reported that an autopsy was performed (report not provided). A few days prior to her death, the patient had visited her physician to discuss contraception. She was not taking any other drugs other than contraception and had no underlying conditions or hereditary conditions. The reporter considered that hypertrophic cardiomyopathy was not related to therapy with GARDASIL, stating "I''m sure it was not directly related". Additional information has been requested.
