Write-up: Our son has been having severe bowel cramping ever since the first dose of the rotavirus vaccine RotaTeq. He has suffered from abdominal cramping, severe crying spells, problems passing bowel movements, decreased appetite, fussiness, and loss of sleep. After having the second dose of the vaccine, his symptoms worsened until he finally developed intussuception. The day he developed this adverse reaction he began the morning with his usual fussiness. He hadn''t slept well the night before and was having trouble being held and bending in the middle. As I tried to give him his morning feeding, he persistantly refused to nurse and became more and more fussy. He arched his back and his stomach became hard. He began screaming out in pain and essentially foaming at the mouth. Following a severe screaming and crying spell, he went into shock. His skin became cool and clammy and he went limp in my arms. We called the pediatrician and they told us to take a rectal temperature. While taking a rectal tempature he passed a large bowel movement containing jelly-like blood clots. We rushed him to the emeregency room where he began to wheeze and vomit up bile. They took an X-ray of his abdomin, and followed up the X-ray with an ultrasound. The ultrasound confirmed the bowel telescoping. They did an air contrast enema to reduce the obstruction and then kept him in the hospital for the next two days for monitoring. When we met with our pediatrician following the intussuception, he didn''t mention that it could be related to the rotavirus vaccine. He went ahead and administered the third dose of the vaccine about a month after our son''s hospitalization. Since the third dose of the vaccine, we have been back to the emergency room with the same symptoms, but the bowel twisting has resolved itself without further medical enemas. 3/23/07 Received ER medical records which reveal patient experienced nasal congestion, pulling at left ear & irritability for approx 3 days prior to being seen in ER on 3/18/07. Exam revealed reddened left TM. PMH: s/p IS 3 wks ago. FINAL DX: left otitis media. 4/13/07 Received medical records from treating hospital which reveals patient experienced jaw clenching, diaphoresis, screaming, pallor, gen fussiness & bloody stools. In ER had bilious vomiting. Held overnight s/p IS reduction by enema. Progressed well & d/c to home. FINAL DX: Intussusception, reduced by air contrast enema.
