Write-up: Information has been received from a physician assistant concerning a 10 year old female with no allergies or medical history who on 22-APR-2002 was vaccinated with a first dose of Varivax without any problems and on 16-JAN-2007 was vaccinated SC in the left deltoid with a 0.5 mL second dose of Varivax (lot # 654131/1150F). Concomitant vaccination on the same day included a dose of Gardasil in the other arm. There was no illness at the time of vaccination. On 17-JAN-2007, the patient developed an injection site rash. The rash was described as a cellulitis that was swollen, warm, and tender to the touch. The patient was seen in the office on 18-JAN-2007 and the cellulitis was determined to be 4 cm in diameter and reported to be larger than it was on 17-JAN-2007. The patient had a fever of 102 degrees Fahrenheit on 18-JAN-2007. Unspecified medical attention was sought and the patient was told to take Benadryl and to use a warm compress. No diagnostic laboratory tests were performed. At the time of the report the patient had not recovered. Follow-up information was received from the physician assistant who reported that on 17-JAN-2007, the patient had red, indurated, warm cellulitis of the left upper extremity around the injection site. It was greater than four inches in diameter with a central vesicle. Her temperature was 102.5. She was treated with Rocephin and Augmentin. The patient recovered on 19-JAN-2007. The patient''s experiences were considered to be disabling and other important medical events by the reporter. No further information is expected.
