Concomitant therapy included DTaP (+) Prevnar. On 26-MAY-2007, the patient experienced intussusception. An abdominal x-ray was performed in the emergency room. Intussusception was located in the right upper quadrant and was reduced via of air enema with no difficulty. On 26-MAY-2007, the patient recovered from intussusception. Intussusception was an other important medical event. In follow-up, the physician reported that the patient was "doing fine." The patient started vomiting and went to the emergency room and was diagnosed with intussuception which was reduced successfully via air enema.
