 en BCG Adenitis-Need for Increased Awareness
Govindarajan, Krishna Kumar & Chai, Feng Yih

Abstract

Bacille Calmette-Guerin (BCG) vaccination for protection against tuberculosis has been in use for long. Although the vaccine is safe, its administration can result in complications such as BCG adenitis. We report here a series of children with BCG adenitis with a view to recognise and manage this condition. It is hoped that this case series would encourage the increased identification of this condition.
