Write-up: poliomyelitis; muscle discomfort; inflammation level high; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable physician based on information received by Pfizer from Biontech (manufacturer control number 59084), license party for Comirnaty. A female patient of an unspecified age received bnt162b2 (COMIRNATY), dose 1 via an unspecified route of administration on Apr2021 (Batch/Lot number was not reported) as 1ST DOSE, SINGLE DOSE for COVID-19 immunisation.

The female patient suffers from diabetes. She has been vaccinated 6 weeks ago with the 1st dose and immediately thereafter (on Apr2021), she had muscle complaints, inflammation parameters were high, and poliomyelitis has been diagnosed. The patient was treated with cortisone and felt significantly better. On 23May she had the 2nd vaccination and received cortisone beforehand. But again, she developed side effects - dizziness, headache, swollen face and lymph nodes. Outcome of the events was unknown. Information on the lot/batch number has been requested.; Sender''s Comments: Based on available information, a possible contributory role of BNT162B2 vaccine can not be excluded for the reported events of poliomyelitis due to temporal relationship. Case will be re-assessed upon the additional information provided. The impact of this report on the benefit/risk profile of the Pfizer product is evaluated as part of Pfizer procedures for safety evaluation, including the review and analysis of aggregate data for adverse events. Any safety concern identified as part of this review, as well as any appropriate action in response, will be promptly notified to regulatory authorities, Ethics Committees, and Investigators, as appropriate.
