Write-up: This case was reported by a physician in the frame of a study and described the occurrence of intussusception in a 6-month-old male subject who was vaccinated with Rotarix (GlaxoSmithKline). The subject had no relevant medical history or allergies. Previous vaccination included Rotarix (GlaxoSmithKline; oral) given on 26 October 2007. On 16 February 2008, the subject received the 2nd dose of Rotarix (oral). On March 15 2008, 28 days after vaccination with the 2nd dose of Rotarix, the subject experienced repeated vomiting (20 episodes/24H), some gastro-bilar vomiting, fever (38 deg. C) and fresh bloody stools (2). The subject was taken to the emergency room. The subject was hospitalised. Physical exam reported continuous crying, distended abdomen, painful to deep examination and hyperactive peristalsis. Abdominal X-ray was performed and showed distended loops with abnormal gas distribution. On 15 March 2008, ileocecal intussusception was confirmed by surgery and was resolved by taxis. Appendectomy was done. The subject was treated with cefotaxime, amikacin, Metamizol and Ketorolac. The subject evolved to clinical improvement and he was discharged on 19 March 2008 in good conditions. On 19 March 2008, the events were resolved. The physician considered the events were unrelated to vaccination with Rotarix.
