CDC Split Type: B0528138A

Write-up: This case was reported by a physician in the frame of a study and described the occurrence of ileocolic intussusception in a 4-month-old female subject who was vaccinated with ROTARIX (GlaxoSmithKline). The subject was on no other medication and had no relevant medical history or allergy. On 22 February 2008, the subject received 1st dose of ROTARIX (oral). Lot number not provided. On 30 March 2008, 37 days after vaccination with ROTARIX, the subject experienced ileocolic intussusception with abdominal pain, irritability and hyporexia. Later vomiting and one day before her admission at emergency room, she manifested one "sanguinolent" stool. On 2 April 2008, the subject was hospitalized with mild dehydration, abdominal pain and distention. Rectal tact was with red stool and mucus. Laboratory tests performed on 2 April 2008 showed the following: Hemoglobin: 12 g/dl (normal range: 10-13), Hematocrit: 33.9% (normal range: 29-42), Leucocytes: 6800 mm3 (normal range: 6000-17500), Lymphocytes: 49.4% (normal range: 40-70), Monocytes: 21.2% (normal range: 5-7), Neutrophils: 29.1% (normal range: 13-35), Platelets: 557000 mm3 (normal range: 300000-700000), Glucose: 82 mg/dl (normal range: 70-110), Creatinine: 0.6 mg/dl (normal range: 0.1-0.6), Sodium: 133 mEq/l (normal range: 135-145), Potassium: 5 mEq/l (normal range: 3.5-4.5), Chloride: 87 mEq/l (normal range: 95-105). Abdominal X-ray was performed on 2 April 2008 and showed abnormal intestinal air distribution, intestinal loop distended and opaque image in pelvic fore. Surgery was done on 2 April 2008. Ileocolic intussusception was found with ischemia in ileon; resolution by taxis was performed and vascular recuperation of ileon was confirmed. Resection was not necessary. The subject was treated with paracetamol, ampicillin, omeprazole, metronidazole, amikacin, metamizole and ketorolac I.V. Clinical evolution was favorable and by franc improvement was discharged on 08 April 2008. On 8 April 2008, the events were resolved. The physician considered the events were unrelated to vaccination with ROTARIX.
