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 female subject who was vaccinated with ROTARIX (GlaxoSmithKline). Previous vaccination included live attenuated human rotavirus vaccine; GlaxoSmithKline; given on 25 October 2007. The subject was on no other medication and had no relevant medical history nor allergy. On 26 December 2007 the subject received 2nd dose of ROTARIX (oral). On 15 February 2008, 51 days after vaccination with ROTARIX, the subject started with continuous vomiting (10 episodes per 24 hours) and bloody stools (2 episodes per 24 hours). Therefore the subject was taken to the emergency room. Subject''s physical examination showed no dehydration, mild abdominal distension, abdominal mass in epigastrium, hypoactive peristalsis, bloody stools at rectal examination. Relevant test includes abdominal x-ray which showed distended loops without gas in rectum. On 18 February 2008 the subject was hospitalised and the same day the subject underwent a surgery. Ileocecocolic intussusception was resolved by taxis and also appendectomy was done. The subject''s clinical evolution was improved. On 25 February 2008 the subject was discharged without any complication. The subject was treated with amikacin, metronidazole (Metronidazol), ranitidine hydrochloride (Ranitidine), dipyrone (Metamizol) and surgery. The physician considered the events were unrelated to vaccination with ROTARIX.
