Write-up: Information has been received from an investigator concerning a 6 month old female who was vaccinated PO with her second dose of ROTATEQ. This report was part of a post-marketing surveillance program. The patient experienced ileocecalcolic intussusception at hepatic flexure characterized by sudden onset severe, colicky abdominal pain, yellowish vomiting, loose stool and some lethargy and pallor 53 days after vaccination and was hospitalized for 2 days. Possible complete reduction of the intussusception via air contrast enema was evidenced by dramatic immediate clinical improvement. The patient was discharged on day 2 and the outcome was noted to be recovering. At this time, relationship of ileocecalcolic intussusception to study therapy is unknown. Ileocecalcolic intussusception was considered to be an other important medical event (enema) by the reporter. Additional information has been requested.
