Write-up: This case was reported by a physician and described the occurrence of intussusception in a 4-month-old male subject who was vaccinated with ROTARIX (GlaxoSmithKline). No medical history of intussusception was reported. On 23 May 2008, the subject received 1st dose of ROTARIX (oral) as well as the vaccines corresponding for 4 months of age. His twin brother was also vaccinated the same day with ROTARIX. He experienced no adverse event. On 27 May 2008, 4 days after vaccination with ROTARIX, the subject experienced crying crisis and low mood. He didn''t experience diarrhea or bloody stools. The subject was brought to hospital and abdominal ultrasound revealed an intussusception which was resolved by air enema. The subject was hospitalised for 2 days. At the time of reporting the events were resolved. The subject was discharged from hospital in good condition. The physician did not think the intussusception was related to vaccination with ROTARIX but she could not rule out completely. Further information is not expected. This case has therefore been closed.
