Abstract

Disseminated bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) infection is an unusual complication of immunization against Mycobacterium tuberculosis with the bacillusCalmette-Guerin. We report on 4 such cases in which the diagnosis was suspected at the fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) procedure. Participants were 4 males (mean age, 21.5 mo: range. 8-36 mo) in good general condition, in whom epidemiology data favoring tuberculosis and presence of pulmonary tuberculosis were lacking. Cases 1 and 2 presented with a deep-seated subcutaneous nodule located near the left mamilla and lower aspect of the left scapula, respectively. resulting from lymph node involvement by, BCG. Cases 3and 4 presented as an osteolytic lesion of the ninth right rib and right iliac bone, respectively. FNAB findings showed poorly to moderately cellularsmears. Epithelioid histiocytes in a granuloma pattern with occasional multinucleated Langerhans-type giant cells. lymphocytes, and polymorphonuclearleukocytes in a finely granular background with necrotic debris were foundin all cases. The presence of isolated calcified spherules interspersed among the cells was found to be a useful finding for diagnosis. When dealing with disseminated BCG infections, clinical and cytological pictures must beevaluated as a whole in order to arrive at an accurate diagnosis. (C) 2001Wiley-Liss, Inc.
