Write-up: This case was reported by a physician in the frame of a study and described the occurrence of ileo-ceco-colic intussusception in a 7-month-old male subject who was vaccinated with ROTARIX (GlaxoSmithKline). The subject was on no other medication and had no relevant medical history or allergy. On 9 May 2008, the subject received 1st dose of ROTARIX (oral). Lot number not provided. On 19 July 2008, 71 days after vaccination with ROTARIX, the subject started with oral intake reduced, abdominal colic, bloody fresh stools, vomiting and irritability. He was taken to ER on 19 July 2008 and at physical exam showed pallor, hyperemic pharynx, currant jelly stools, abdomen with dance sign, bowel sounds decreased, and rectal tact with presence of blood. Barite enema was performed on 19 July 2008; ileo-ceco-colic intussusception was found and reduced in the first intent with success. Any complication was reported. The subject was hospitalized and discharged in good clinical conditions on 22 July 2008. Laboratory tests were performed on 19 July 2008 and showed the following results: Hemoglobin: 11.8 g/dl; Hematocrit: 36 ; PT: 12.3 sec; PTT: 40 sec. No abdominal x-ray was reported in the clinical file. On 22 July 2008, the events were resolved. The physician considered the events were unrelated to vaccination with ROTARIX.
