19. Provide supplemental information here

O - Unclassifiable/unassessable Pruritus is not expected to be generalized but rather be linked to the application site. Pruritus was pre-existing. Exact time to onset for worsening of sign is unknown, thus other causes should be considered. Further, reported death is not expected after product application as inconsistent with pharmaco-toxicological product profile. Other etiologies are more probable. Case reported 10 years after events occurred, with very little details; reliability of data is questionable. Considering very low level of information (age, medical history, time to onset unknown and necropsy not available), a product connection is unassessable.
