Write-up: Information has been received from a physician concerning a 5 month old male patient who was vaccinated with a dose of ROTATEQ on an unknown date. The physician, who works in the emergency room, reported that she was aware of a patient who presented to the emergency room with possible intussusception in JUL-2008. The patient''s symptoms were vomiting, abdominal distention, and blood in the stool. The emergency room performed an x-ray and determined that the patient had reduced airflow and suspected intussusception. This adverse event occurred one week after a dose of ROTATEQ. It is unknown if the adverse event occurred after the first, second, or third vaccination. The patient was sent to another hospital that specializes in pediatrics but it is unknown if the child was admitted. No product quality complaint was involved. Upon internal review, intussusception was considered to be another important medical event. Additional information has been requested.
