The subject was on no other medication and had no relevant medical history nor allergy. Previous vaccination included ROTARIX (GlaxoSmithKline, oral) given on 4 May 2007. On 6 September 2007 the subject received 2nd dose of ROTARIX (9 ml, oral, lot number not provided). On 29 November 2007, 84 days after vaccination with ROTARIX, the subject experienced vomiting, irritability, abdominal pain, oral intolerance and bloody mucus in stool. She was admitted in the emergency room the same day. Physical exam showed dehydration, hyperaemic pharynx and intestinal silent. An abdominal X-ray was performed showing invagination. she was hospitalised for 5 days. A surgery was performed on 29 November 2007, ileocecal position and appendicitis were found and resolved by taxis and appendectomy. No complication occurred. The subject showed a good clinical evolution, she was treated with cefotaxime and amikacin (Amikacine) and was discharged on 03 December 2007, the events were resolved.
