Write-up: This case was reported by a physician in the frame of a study and described the occurrence of intussusception in a 4-month-old female subject who was vaccinated with ROTARIX (GlaxoSmithKline). The subject was under no other medication and had no relevant medical history nor allergy. On 12 September 2008, the subject received 1st dose of ROTARIX (oral), lot number not provided. On 29 October 2008, 47 days after vaccination with ROTARIX, the subject experienced bloody stools with vomiting, fever and rectorrhagia. On 30 October 2008, the subject was brought to the emergency ward. Physical examination revealed malaise, pallor, lethargy, dehydration, abdominal pain, bowel peristalsis decreased, abdominal mass in the left side and current jelly stools in the diaper. The abdomen X-ray performed showed lack of distal air and diminished in transverse colon with 1 opacity (80%). Surgery was performed and intussusception was found and reduced by taxis. An appendectomy was also performed. The subject was hospitalised for 6 days. The subject was treated with paracetamol and cefotaxime. On 4 November 2008, the events were resolved and the subject was discharged from hospital in good clinical condition. The physician considered the events were unrelated to vaccination with ROTARIX.
