Write-up: Information has been received from a physician''s assistant concerning a female patient who in approximately February 2011 ("around two months ago"), was vaccinated with a first 0.5 ml dose of GARDASIL. Subsequently the patient said her arm where the injection was given, it swelled up and she had a lot of pain about 5 days around the injection site. The swelling continued for days as well. She had limited use in her arm because of the swelling. It was reported after 5 days the adverse events improved. The patient did not want to continue the second and third dose. At the time of reporting, the patient was fine. The patient did not seek medical attention. The "arm where the injection was given, swelled up" was considered to be disabling ("She had limited use in her arm because of the swelling"). No further information is available.
