Write-up: This case was reported by a physician in the frame of a study and described the occurrence of ileocolic intussusception in a 3-month-old female subject who was vaccinated with ROTARIX (GlaxoSmithKline). The subject was previously healthy. The subject was on no other medication and had no relevant medical history. On 8 April 2008, the subject received 1st dose of ROTARIX (oral). On 27 May 2008, 49 days after vaccination with ROTARIX, the subject experienced ileocolic intussusception, fever, vomiting, current jelly stool, malaise, pallor, dehydration, abdominal pain and hyperperistalsis. The subject was hospitalised for 9 days. X ray abdomen not available in the clinical file. Surgery was performed on 29 May 2008, ileocolic invagination with schemia and necrosis to 10 cm of ileocecal valve was found (distal ileon). Resection of necrotic ileon segment (15 cm) at 5 cm of ileocecal valve and appendectomy was done without complications. Post surgical evolution was slowly to improvement. The subject was treated with ampicillin and paracetamol. On 6 June 2008, the events were resolved and the subject was discharged in good clinical conditions. The physician considered the events were unrelated to vaccination with ROTARIX.
