Write-up: Information has been received from an investigator concerning a 2 month old male who was vaccinated PO with his first dose of ROTATEQ. This report was part of a post-marketing surveillance program. Seven days after vaccination the patient experienced ileocolic intussusception and was hospitalized for 2 days. Two days prior to admission the patient experienced crampy abdominal pain. Laboratory diagnostic studies included an ultrasonography which verified the ileocolic intussusception. A contrast enema failed to reduce the intussusception, however; it was reduced surgically. The patient was discharged from the hospital on day and the outcome was unknown. At this time, relationship of ileocolic intussusception to study therapy is unknown. Ileocolic intussusception was considered to be an other important medical event (surgery) by the reporter. Additional information has been requested.
