Abstract

This case report describes diagnosis and management of intussusception in an 8-month-old baby girl seen at the Ventersdorp District Hospital, South Africa. According to the vaccination card, the child had been immunized with rotavirus vaccine with the last dose given 6 months and 2 weeks before presentation to Ventersdorp Hospital. This case of intussusception was unlikely associated with rotavirus vaccination.
