Write-up: On 19 May 2008, she received the first dose of ROTARIX. This case was reported by a physician in the frame of a study and described the occurrence of ileocolic intussusception in a 2-month-old female subject who was vaccinated with ROTARIX (GlaxoSmithKline). The subject had no relevant medical history or allergy. On 19 May 2008, the subject received the 1st dose of ROTARIX (oral, lot number not provided). On 12 June 2008, 24 days after vaccination with the 1st dose of ROTARIX, the subject experienced vomiting (6 episodes/24 hours), hyporexia, bloody stools (2 episodes/24 hours) and one episode of vomiting with bilious. On the same day she was taken to ER. On 12 June 2008, the subject was hospitalised. Physical exam reported somnolence, mild dehydration, painful abdominal mass in the right side, increased peristalsis and jelly-red stools during rectal examination with mild pallor. Lab tests were performed. On 13 June 2008 surgery was done; Ileocolic intussusception was resolved by taxis without complications and prophylactic appendectomy was performed. She had clinical improvement and was discharged on 16 June 2008 in good clinical conditions. The subject was treated with ampicillin, amikacin and paracetamol. On 16 June 2008, the events were resolved. The physician considered the events were possibly related to vaccination with ROTARIX.
