HPV vaccine possibly linked to cutaneous PAN

In late 2007, a 19-year-old female presented at an outpatient dermatology practice (affiliated with the Department of Dermatology at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University) based in Warwick, Rhode Island, four weeks after receiving her first dose of Gardasil, says Leslie Robinson-Bostom, M.D., associate professor of dermatology, Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. The patient’s symptoms included multiple 1 cm to 2 cm pink tender nodules on her lower extremities and dorsal upper extremities, as well as associated lower extremity swelling, joint pain and muscle aches.
