Write-up: Pt rec''d flu vaccine (lot # 2202: UJ535AB) at a pharmacy on 11/16/2020. The next day he developed right hemifacial spasm and palatal myoclonus. 11/17/2020 BRAIN MRI showed a small left frontal non-enhancing lesion, initially thought to possibly be a subacute stroke. However, he worsened and developed anarthria, aphagia, right arm wkns, and aspiration pneumonia necessitating intubation. Repeat BRAIN MRI 11/24/2020 was worse. He had the 1st of 2 brain biopsies 11/28/2020, which pathology was resulted as "reactive changes" but was non-diagnostic. He had add''l BRAIN MRIs that showed continued worsening of the left hemisphere lesion and subsequent involvement of the right hemisphere. A 2nd brain brain biopsy was done 12/16/2020, which pathology was also resulted as "reactive changes" but was also non-diagnostic. The pt has a h/o "low-grade" T-cell lymphoma, but neither biopsy samples had evidence of lymphoma in CNS or of obvious features to suggest other neoplasm, vasculitis, granulomatous disease, infection, or demyelination. This is a very odd / challenging case. Initially despite the timing I did not consider the flu vaccine to be relevant / causative. However, there is no other obvious possible etiology. Hence I would consider the flu vaccine probably related to his CNS problem and a serious adverse reaction. He eventually started having seizures. He remains in a coma on life support. His family is going to withdraw care 1/8/2020.
