Concomitant medication(s) included: LOSARTAN taken for hypertension; BUMEX taken for hypertension; LEVOTHYROXINE taken for hypothyroidism; GABAPENTIN taken for neuropathy peripheral; SIMVASTATIN taken for blood cholesterol increased; WELLBUTRIN taken for depression; FLEXERIL [CEFIXIME] taken for muscle relaxant therapy; PERCOCET [OXYCODONE HYDROCHLORIDE;OXYCODONE TEREPHTHALATE;PARACETAMOL] taken for pain; VITAMIN D [COLECALCIFEROL] taken for supplementation therapy. Past drug history included: Tizanidine, reaction(s): "Tizanidine Allergy", notes: Tizanidine Allergy; Demerol, reaction(s): "Demerol Allergy", notes: Demerol Allergy; Betadine, reaction(s): "Betadine Allergy", notes: Betadine Allergy. The following information was reported: ANKLE FRACTURE (medically significant) with onset Aug2021, outcome "recovering", described as "Broken ankle"; SPINAL CORD COMPRESSION (medically significant) with onset Sep2021, outcome "recovering", described as "Thoracic Spinal cord compression"; PULMONARY EMBOLISM (hospitalization) with onset Sep2021, outcome "recovered", described as "Pulmonary Embolism"; HYPOAESTHESIA (non-serious) with onset 2021, outcome "recovering", described as "Numbness in lower body/numbess on both legs"; COUGH (non-serious) with onset 10Aug2021, outcome "not recovered", described as "Cough"; NASOPHARYNGITIS (non-serious) with onset 2021, outcome "not recovered", described as "Cold"; DYSPHONIA (non-serious) with onset 2021, outcome "not recovered", described as "Hoarseness". The patient underwent the following laboratory tests and procedures: magnetic resonance imaging: (Sep2021) t10 to l1 compression; (Sep2021) pulmonary embolism; x-ray limb: (10Aug2021) unknown results. The action taken for upadacitinib was dosage not changed. Therapeutic measures were taken as a result of ankle fracture, spinal cord compression, pulmonary embolism, hypoaesthesia, cough, nasopharyngitis, dysphonia. No follow-up attempts are possible; information about lot/batch number cannot be obtained. No further information is expected. Additional Information: On 16Dec2021, received updates to medical history, event information, reporter opinion of causality, company opinion of causality, company alternative etiology, suspect drug information, concomitant drug information, treatment drug information, past drug information, laboratory/diagnostic proce-dures and narrative description. The events of "T10 TO L1 spine compression", "cough", "cold" and "hoarseness" were added. the event of "broken ankle" is now considered serious. the event of "numb-ness in lower body" was amended to "numbness in lower body/numbness on both legs". Solicited report by a consumer of a 69 year old female with events of Pulmonary Embolism, T10 to L1 Spine Compression and Broken Ankle and non-serious numbness in lower body/numbess on both legs, cough, cold and hoarseness with Rinvoq (Upadacitinib). On an unknown date, the patient experienced cough. On 10Aug2020, the patient experienced broken an-kle. Therapy dates for Pfizer Biontech Covid-19 Vaccine (Tozinameran)(Injection)(Tozinameran),(Unknown,Unknown was Jan2021- Jan2021, Aug2021 - Aug2021 In 2021, the patient experienced numbness in lower body/numbess on both legs, cold and hoarseness. In Sep2021, the patient experienced pulmonary embolism and T10 to L1 spine compression. In 2021, the pulmonary embolism resolved. Pfizer Biontech Covid-19 Vaccine (Tozinameran) was also considered suspect. The patient had a pulmonary embolism. She had ankle broken in Aug2021 and had numbness in lower body. She was having surgery and was going to rehab. She mentioned that she was walking and suddenly her ankle popped and she was rushed to the emergency room Patient had ankle surgery on 19Aug2021. She was transferred to a rehab facility for recovery. Patient had an emergency back surgery due to T10 to L1 compression. She was hospitalized for five days due to Pulmonary embolism and spent 3 days in Intensive Care Unit. She was prescribed with an unknown antibiotic due to bad cold and cough. Primary reporter did not have the lot number information, because the packaging was discarded. The patient was treated with Desolet, Codeine, Eliquis And Heparin. Causality for Rinvoq (Upadacitinib) The reporter's causality for the event(s) of pulmonary embolism, T10 to L1 spine compression, numb-ness in lower body/numbess on both legs, cough, cold and hoarseness with Rinvoq(Upadacitinib) was no reasonable possibility. The reporter's causality for the event(s) of broken ankle was not provided. Agency's opinion is that there is no reasonable possibility that the events of pulmonary embolism, T10 to L1 spine compression, broken ankle and numbness in lower body/numbess on both legs are relat-ed to Rinvoq (Upadacitinib). Agency's opinion is that there is a reasonable possibility that the events of cough, cold and hoarseness are related to Rinvoq (Upadacitinib) Relevant Laboratory & Other Diagnostic Tests : 10Aug2021 Ankle Xray: Broken Ankle, Sep2021 Magnetic Resonance Imaging: T10 to L1 compression and Sep2021 Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Pulmonary Embolism.
