CDC Split Type: WAES0608USA01046

Write-up: Information has been received from a 71 year old retired physician with no known allergies and hypercholesterolaemia who on 7/11/06 was vaccinated in the left arm with a dose of varicella zoster virus vaccine live. Concomitant therapy included ezetimibe. A couple weeks after vaccination on 7/27/06, the pt experienced tachycardia that was persisted. He was seen by a two cardiologists and had an echocardiogram done which did not show anything. Two EKGs were done and his HR was 110-120. He also reported that he was having a little shortness of breath occasionally,but didn''t think, it was related to vaccination. He did not have any other cardiovascular problems. The physician reported his sustained tachycardia to be potentially life threatening and disabling because he wasn''t sure if his tachycardia was self limiting and temporary or would cause additional problems. He reported that he was nervous when his HR was high for 2-3 weeks. His cardiologist recommended unspecified medication, however the physician refused to take any medication. As of 8/10/06 the physician reported that his heartrate was gradually slowing down, it was 90-100 which was better than before but still not back to normal. Four months prior to vaccination the pt scheduled knee surgery for 8/22/06. He explained that he would proceed with the surgery as long as his heart rate was back to normal. Additional information has been requested.

There was no concomitant medication. On 26Jul06 the pt experienced a rash with little tiny blisters. She also had a congested chest and chest pain associated with the rash. The rash would come and go and was worse in the afternoon. The pt was treated with triamcinolone cream and diphenhydramine hydrochloride (Benadryl). The pt reported that she was very sick, but was feeling better. The pt reported that she was seen by another physician who noted that she had a rash inside her esophagus, chest and lung. The week of 14Aug06 the pt was fine, but on 23Aug06 she broke out in blisters. The pt had been taking diphenhydramine hydrochloride (Benadryl) 25mg TID. On 24Aug06 the pt was going to take two 25mg tablets of diphenhydramine hydrochloride (Benadryl) since her rash is always worse in the afternoon. The nurse reported that the pt had a history of cancer and had a tumor in her head a year ago, in 2005. The pt was in remission and was in between her chemotherapy treatments, with the last treatment in May 2006. At the time of the report, the pt had not yet recovered. There was no product quality complaint involved. The pt''s chest pain was considered to be an other important medical event (OMIC). Additional information has been requested.
