Write-up: This spontaneous report as received from a gynecologist refers to a 22 year old female patient with no history of sexual activity who was married with a young male with no history of sexual activity, both were not at risk group for HPV. In March 2010, the patient was possibly vaccinated with the first dose of GARDASIL (Lot # not reported, expiration date and route not specified). The physician reported that in April 2010, after one month of vaccination, following a day of hiking the patient complained to her husband at the evening about a headache and within a short time the patient lost consciousness. The patient was hospitalized at the intensive care unit under the diagnosis of autoimmune inflammation of the brain. Despite intensive treatments that included immunoglobulin therapy and wide and global consultations the patient''s condition deteriorated and the patient passed away after several days in April 2010. No post-mortem autopsy was performed. The physician felt that severe autoimmune inflammation of the brain was not related to vaccination with GARDASIL. The physician stated that hospital''s physicians did not relate the event to vaccination with GARDASIL and it was never raised as a cause. The reporter stated that the patient''s sister mentioned at one point that might be the patient was not vaccinated with GARDASIL after all and only had a prescription at that time. Additional information has been requested.
