Severe disseminated BCG infection in an 8-year-old girl.

An 8-year-old girl died of sepsis due to staphylococcal infection one year and 8 months after Bacille Calmette-Guerin (BCG) revaccination. Two months after the vaccination in accordance with the school health program, she was hospitalized with a high fever, skin rash over the face and lower limbs, and leukopenia. Her clinical and laboratory pictures were not compatible with those of any established type of immunodeficiency. The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test for M. tuberculosis complex was positive for bone marrow, pleural fluid, and peripheral blood. The strain recovered from a mycobacterial culture of the blood was identical to the BCG strains with which the patient was vaccinated, based on restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) and a pulse-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) analyses of DNA. She developed finally a lung abscess due to staphylococcal septicemia, which was the direct cause of her death.
