Write-up: This case was reported by a physician in the frame of a PASS study and described the occurrence of intussusception in a 7-month-old female subject who was vaccinated with ROTARIX (GlaxoSmithKline). Previous vaccination included live attenuated human rotavirus vaccine; GlaxoSmithKline; oral given on 15 January 2008. On 14 March 2008 the subject received 2nd dose of ROTARIX (oral). On 29 April 2008, 46 days after vaccination with ROTARIX, the subject presented abdominal pain, vomiting (2 episodes), bloody stools (2 times) and fever. On 30 April 2008 the subject was taken to the emergency room. Physical examination included fever 38.8 deg C, tender abdomen with decreased peristalsis and no abdominal mass. She had bloody stool in her diaper. Relevant test included abdominal x-ray which showed distended loops in upper left quadrant. The same day the subject underwent surgery in which ileoceco-colic intussusception was confirmed and resolved by taxis. Also appendectomy was done. The event was resolved without complication and good clinical evolution. On 02 May the subject was discharged in good condition. The subject was treated with metronidazole, amikacin and ranitidine hydrochloride (Ranitidine). The physician considered the events were unrelated to vaccination with ROTARIX.
