Manufacturer Narrative
Sanofi company comment dated 09-sep-2020: this case concerns a patient who received initial treatment with hylan g-f 20, sodium hyaluronate reported that it did not give the expected result. She later received treatment with prednisone and reported having face and body swelling, an absurd jowl, an allergy in the middle of the face which was a type of acne typically caused by corticosteroids and increased pressure. All these symptoms were reported as onset of a cushing's syndrome and patient also experienced stomach pain and vitamin d increased. Based on the temporal relationship the causal relationship of the device in the occurrence of events cannot be denied and based on the pharmacological plausibility and dechallenge results the causal relationship of prednisone in the occurrence of the events can be evidently established. However, further information regarding patient's current medical condition, concomitant medications and technique used while administration of injection precludes complete medical assessment of the case.

On (b)(6) 2020, the patient started using hylan g-f 20, sodium hyaluronate, (formulation, dosage, batch number, indication: unknown) for once on the left hip. (product administered at inappropriate site). On the same day, her doctor placed a medicine next to the application called triancil (off label use). On the unknown date of 2020, after 1 and a half months of taking of the product, patient did not obtain the expected result (device ineffective). As corrective of the lack of result of application of product, the patient was prescribed with prednisone (meticortem) and ketoprofen (profenid). On the unknown date in 2020, patient took prednisone (formulation, strength, dosage, indication, frequency: unknown). Patient informed that after the use of the medication he turned into a monster, because he presented with all possible side effects. On the unknown date in 2020, after unknown latency, the patient's face and body swelled absurdly, got an absurd jowl (swelling face) (swelling). The patient also presented an allergy in the middle of face.

The patient related the events presented to the use of corticosteroids, because when she weaned the events began to improve visibly but reported that profenid was very weak because her pains had returned. Currently the patient was only in use of profenid 150mg, two tablets a day. It was also reported that the fan and rheumatoic factor tests were negative, but vitamin d3 (hydroxy 25) was 110 which was above the desirable one that was up to 100 (reference value) (vitamin d increased). The clinic informed the patient that the vitamin test might have given this alteration, because it was related to some pain of this whole situation. Patient was waiting for a period to retake vitamin d and would return to rheumatologist. The patient informed that she was currently locked and in pain. The patient did recommend synvisc one to everyone and further said that she did not want to undergo a surgery because as soon as the pain start, she would already perform the application.
