The subject was on no other medication and had no relevant medical history or allergy. On 15 April 2008, the subject received 1st dose of ROTARIX (oral). Lot number not provided. On 6 July 2008, 82 days after vaccination with ROTARIX, the subject started with fever, vomiting and diarrhea. On 11 July 2008, 87 days after vaccination with ROTARIX, the patient experienced bloody stools and he was hospitalized with irritability and fever. Physical exam reported pallor, irritability, tachycardia, current jelly stool, abdominal pain and increased peristalsis. Surgery was performed on 11 July 2008. Caeco-colic invagination with multiple hypertrophy ganglions was found and correction by taxis without complication was done; intestinal exploration not evidenced vascular compromise.
