Abstract
A 12-year-old girl with multifocal skeletal sclerosis has been investigated. She was BCG vaccinated at birth and developed regional lymphadenitis in her left groin at two months of age. She was healthy until approximately 10 years of age, after which deficient height and weight gain occurred. BCG-itis was diagnosed in skeleton lesions. No evidence of immunodeficiency was found in the patient. After antituberculous treatment, the skeleton lesions, previously seen at bone scan, had disappeared. There has been a dramatic effect on her weight gain, growth and general well-being.
