The patient also developed an enlarged spleen, enlarged gallbladder and a painful injection site and was therefore hospitalized overnight.

Preliminary diagnosis was considered to be spherocytosis, as the patient''s red blood cells were abnormal and killed each other off. At the time of the report the patient was recovering resolving. Paralysis of left arm and leg were considered to be disabling per primary reporter. Additional information has been requested.
