Write-up: Information has been received from a physician and a licensed practical nurse concerning a 12 year old female with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder and no known drug allergies, who on 14-JUN-2010 was vaccinated with the first dose of GARDASIL (lot # 1487Y). Concomitant therapy included VYVANSE (for the attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder). No other vaccines were given on the day GARDASIL was administered. On 16-JUN-2010, the patient demonstrated symptoms of facial droop and impaired speech, so went to the ER (not admitted), and was diagnosed with bell''s palsy made based on symptoms. No diagnostic testing was performed. The patient was ordered oral ACYCLOVIR, oral PREDNISONE, and ophthalmic erythromycin ointment for 10 days. The patient went to follow-up with an ENT physician (no details). The patient was seen in office on 21-JUN-2010 and 06-JUL-2010, and was still recovering. The event was considered disabling, but not life threatening by the licensed practical nurse. Additional information has been requested.
