Write-up: This spontaneous report as received from the patient''s mother in an article online via a company representative, refers to a 11 year old female patient who was normal, conscientious, healthy and very active. The patient''s medical history was not reported. On 02-SEP-2010, the patient was vaccinated with her first dose of GARDASIL (dose, lot number and route not provided). No co-suspect or concomitant therapies were provided. The patient''s mother stated that on 07-SEP-2010 was the patient''s first day of middle school and approximately in September 2010, after receiving GARDASIL, the patient began to experience fatigue and headaches. The patient did not feel good. She began sleeping over 12 hours a day and even more on the weekends. She missed days at school, dance lessons and cheer practices. Soon, her illness was visible on the outside too. She did not look good, she had circles under her eyes, her skin color was ashen and she appeared listless. Approximately in September 2010, the patient''s earliest symptoms were a constant headache or migraine that did not respond to pain relievers, stabbing 24/7 bilateral ear pain, fatigue not relieved by sleep, abdominal pain, nausea and joint pain. The patient visited her pediatrician repeatedly, and began visiting neurologists, ear, nose and throat specialist (ENT''s), gastroenterologists (GI), and an obstetrics and gynecology (OBGYN) specialist, and made several visits to the Emergency Room. The patient received many blood tests, computerized tomogram (CAT) scans and a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), but there was no relief of the patient''s symptoms. The reporter stated that the drugs prescribed to alleviate her symptoms only made her feel worse. The patient''s pediatrician and other doctors involved with the patient care began suggesting that her illness was psychosomatic and recommended to take her to a psychologist. In October 2010, the patient was first tested for Lyme disease and the results were negative (as were two later rounds of testing, exact dates unspecified). In April 2011, the patient could no longer go to school or participate in dance or cheerleading because the pain and fatigue were all consuming. The reporter stated that there was no relief of the patient''s symptoms and every doctor refused to consider Lyme disease or GARDASIL to be related to the patient''s illness. In approximately April 2011, the patient''s list of symptoms included the following: 24/7 headaches and migraines, 24/7 stabbing ear pain, hyperacusis, fatigue, abdominal pain, nausea, all over joint pain, constant sore throat, visual disturbances, light sensitivity, cognitive issues such as memory and severe comprehension problems, random numbness and tingling, weird "bug crawling" skin sensations, generalized weakness throughout her body (it was difficult for the patient to just sit in the shower to bathe), dizziness, fainting and heart palpitations. The patient slept long hours and stayed in her bedroom shielding herself from the noise of everyday living. In May 2011, tick-borne specialized lab tests were performed. The results showed that the patient was highly positive for Bartonella henselae, also highly positive for Mycoplasma pneumoniae and that her immune system was struggling. The patient''s Western Blot for Lyme disease was negative. The reporter mentioned that the results were taken to the local hospital and also to the patient''s neurologist, and even the patient had the classic Bartonella rash (looked like purple and red stretch marks) surrounding her breasts and hips which was confirmation of an active Bartonella infection, both doctors told her that these test results only showed that the patient was "exposed" to Bartonella but it did not mean she had an active infection. and that both came to the same conclusion that her Bartonella rash was actually just stretch marks. The reporter stated that neither doctor was concerned about the patient''s blazing Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection nor was the
