Write-up: This case was reported by the foreign Health Authority, the original reporter was a consumer, on 05/Jul/2012, Ref: GB-MHRA-ADR 2179778. This case is not medically confirmed. A 13 year old female patient received HPV vaccine, batch and manufacturer not reported on 01/Sep/2008. On 01/Sep/2008, the same day as vaccination, the patient experienced difficulty in standing for 13 days and recovered on 14/Sep/2008. On 01/Oct/2008, 30 days post vaccination the patient experienced weakness and recovered on 01/Feb/2012. On unreported dates, an unreported time post vaccination, the patient experienced depression, dizziness, fatigue, fever, flu like symptoms, iron deficiency, muscle pain, excessive sleep, syncope and vitamin B12 deficiency. The patient was recovering from the depression and excessive sleep and had recovered with sequelae from the vitamin B12 deficiency. The outcome of the remaining events was not known. Medical advice was sought from the school medical team, however the reporter was dismissed with "she''ll be fine in a couple of days". No names and details were recorded. The initial reporter to the agency stated the patient was in the 2008 batch so the vaccine as new, the initial reporter called their own doctor who seemed very defensive of the vaccine and assured the reporter the patient would be fine. The GP had informed the reporter that the patient had been ill for a long time, dating back to when she had the vaccine, the reporter asked the GP about news reports linking the illness and vaccines and the GP informed the reporter that the patients human papillomavirus levels were fine. The patient had a further dose of HPV vaccine, batch and manufacturer not reported on 11/Nov/2008. The reporter considered the case to be serious for disability and other medically significant reasons. The patient had birth control implant since she was 16. The patient experienced, dysmenorrhoea and painful periods that made her very ill in bed on an unreported date with an unreported outcome (unknown if this was prior to or post GARDASIL vaccination). The patient was taking iron and vitamin B12 (start dates unknown). The Health Authorities reported dysmenorrhea, painful periods and birth control implant in the history section, but upon internal review, the company decided to code dysmenorrhea and painful periods as adverse events.
