Write-up: This case was reported by a physician and described the occurrence of intussusception in a 3-month-old male subject who was vaccinated with ROTARIX (GlaxoSmithKline). Previous and/or concurrent vaccination included ROTARIX; GlaxoSmithKline given on 27 September 2008. On 8 November 2008, the subject received 2nd dose of ROTARIX (oral). On 16 November 2008, 8 days after vaccination with ROTARIX, the subject experienced bloody stools and abdominal pain, leading to hospitalisation, intussusception. The physician considered the events were clinically significant (or requiring intervention). The abdomen X-ray revealed an intussusception. On 17 November 2008, the subject was unsuccessfully treated with barium salt. The same day, surgery was performed. At the time of reporting the subject was still hospitalised and the events are improving. The physician considered the events were possibly related to vaccination with ROTARIX.
