Write-up: This case was reported by a foreign regulatory authority (AM20090420) and described the occurrence of intussusception of intestine in a 3-month-old female subject who was vaccinated with ROTARIX (GlaxoSmithKline). Medical conditions and concurrent medications were unspecified. The subject weighted 5.8 kg and measured 57 cm. On an unspecified date, the subject received a 1st dose of ROTARIX (batch unknown, oral). Three days after vaccination with ROTARIX, the subject was hospitalized for crying and refusal to eat. Ultrasound scan and X-ray showed intussusception of intestine, reduced by hydrosoluble enema. All the events resolved. According to the foreign method of assessment, the relationship between vaccination with ROTARIX and the reported events was dubious.
