Write-up: This case was reported by a physician in the frame of a PASS study and described the occurrence of intussusception in a 7-month-old male subject who was vaccinated with ROTARIX (GlaxoSmithKline). Previous and/or concurrent vaccination included DTaP, Hep B and IPV, manufacturer unspecified; intramuscular given on 10 August 2008; Hep B vaccine; manufacturer unspecified; intramuscular given on 10 August 2008; pneumococcal vaccine, unspecified; manufacturer unspecified; intramuscular given on 10 August 2008. On 9 May 2008 the subject received 1st dose of ROTARIX (oral). On 28 August 2008, 111 days after vaccination with ROTARIX, the subject presented gastrobiliar vomiting, abdominal distention, pain, irritability, oral intolerance, current jelly stools and fever. The same day the subject was admitted to hospital. Subject''s physical examination included irritability, pallor, abdominal distention, generalized pain, decreased bowel sounds and abdominal mass in the right flank. Dance signs were positive and rectal tact was with current jelly stools. Relevant test includes thoracic and abdominal x-ray with distended loops and edema between loops. Intussusception was suspected. Therefore pneumoenema was performed without success. On 29 August 2008 the subject underwent a surgery in which ileocecal intussusception with mesenteric adenitis was confirmed and it reduced by taxis without complications. On 02 September 2008 the subject was discharged in good clinical conditions. The subject was treated with AMIKACIN, METRONIDAZOLE, OMEPRAZOLE, METAMIZOL, enema and surgery. On 2 September 2008, the events were resolved. The physician considered the events were unrelated to vaccination with ROTARIX.
