Postural tachycardia syndrome (POTS) is a heterogeneous disorder of the autonomic nervous system, consisting of orthostatic intolerance and an increase in heart rate of more than 30 bpm within 10 min of standing or head-up tilt . Human Papillomavirus Quadrivalent Vaccine, Gardasil, has been approved for prevention of cervical cancer in women, aged 9–26. We describe a 20-year-old woman who developed POTS after vaccination with Gardasil.
(Note from SaneVax: As of December 2010, there are 12 additional reports of POTS reported to VAERS after HPV vaccinations.)
