Vomiting and apparent life-threatening event.
We describe a 6-month-old girl who had an apparent life-threatening event after a vomiting episode resulting in activation of emergency medical services for transport to the emergency department. The differential diagnosis for this presentation is broad but easily narrowed down given the additional clinical information. Her resultant diagnosis of intussusception is a common diagnosis but with an uncommon presentation.
