The National polio surveillance programme is one of the prime health projects in Nepal and its neighboring countries. A huge amount of effort and money is being pumped into polio surveillance in these areas. Vaccine associated Paralytic polio is one of the prime concerns as far as the side effects are considered. In the past there has been concern over the relationship of Oral Polio Vaccine (OPV) with intussusception as with rotavirus vaccine. We report a case of ileo-colic intussusception which occurred within 24 hours of oral polio vaccination during the pulse polio immunisation. We also discuss the facts available to us regarding the association of OPV with intussusception.

Keywords: Oral polio vaccine, intussusception
