Write-up: Information has been received from a consumer concerning her approximately 17 year old daughter with no medical history or allergies who was vaccinated with three dose of GARDASIL. Concomitant therapy included "LOLESTRA". The consumer reported that after receiving the first and second dose of GARDASIL the patient experienced injection site soreness but then was fine. Then about three weeks after receiving the third dose of GARDASIL. The patient experienced bruising in her leg which caused immobility, which they thought was a blood clot so they took her to the emergency room and had to stabilize her leg and then shortly after the bruising cleared up. Then in September 2008 the bruising came back in her leg and starting in November 2008 the patient started to get sick constantly. The patient could not move, was very exhausted, lost about 7 pounds, could not eat, and had breathing problems. The patient was taken to a pulmonologist because her pediatrician thought she may have walking pneumonia, mono or asthma, but they were all ruled out. Then the patient was taken to a physician who ran a bunch of blood test, and computerized tomography scan (CT) of her brain and a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of her left leg. The MRI and CT scan came back fine, but the physician stated that through the blood work the patient''s immune system was compromised and believed it was from GARDASIL " The patient then started to get a lot of sinus infections and developed cyst in her sinus so she had out patient surgery (name of hospital, address and phone number unspecified)." The consumer reported that in mid May 2009 the patient developed mono and had been doing better but still got exhausted pretty fast, and had missed about 45 days of school this past school year. The patient was seen by the pediatrician to seek medical attention. At the time of report, the patient was recovering. Upon internal review, mononucleosis and bruising in leg were considered to be disabling.
