Write-up: This case was reported by a physician in the frame of a study and described the occurrence of ileocolic intussusception in a 8-month-old male subject who was vaccinated with Rotarix (GlaxoSmithKline) for prophylaxis. Previous vaccination included live attenuated human rotavirus vaccine (GlaxoSmithKline, oral) given on 10 December 2007. On 11 February 2008, the subject received 2nd dose of Rotarix (oral). lot number not provided. On 26 June 2008, the subject suffered cranial-encephalic trauma without loss of consciousness just drowsiness. He was admitted to Emergency room on 27 June 2008 where exams were performed. On 27 June 2008, 4 months after vaccination with Rotarix, the subject started with vomiting, nausea, decreased gastrointestinal peristalsis, and irritability. One day later, without improvement, the subject experienced abdominal pain, one bloody stool and palpable mass in abdominal area. Abdominal ultrasound showed round image in ileocolic zone not distended. The subject was hospitalized for surgery and ileo-appendiculo-colic intussusception was found and corrected by taxis and appendectomy without complications. The subject was treated with metronidazole and paracetamol. On 5 July 2008, the events were resolved. The convalescence and abdominal recuperation were gradual and neurological conditions were favorable. The patient was discharge on 05 July 2008 in good clinical conditions.
