Abstract

Bilateral axillary lymphadenitis complicating BCG vaccination in both arms (0.025 ml) in an immunocompetent 13-month-old boy is described. Prompt administration of isoniazid and erythromycin did not prevent suppuration of the affected lymph nodes. It was managed by bilateral surgical excision of the nodes.
