The number of children born to 180 females exposed to abdominal fluoroscopy in connection with an attack of intussusception in infancy or childhood was compared to the number born to women who were treated for the same disease without fluoroscopy.

No difference was found between the number of children born or the age distribution of birth between the two groups. The significance in relation to the known radiation sensitivity of mice is discussed. The sex ratio in this and a comparable series shows an unexpected though statistically non-significant increase in male births.
