Conclusions: In the absence of changes to other aspects of TB control, a switch to selective vaccination will result in increased cases of childhood TB. Although not considered cost-effective, selective vaccination may be preferable to no vaccination until other changes to TB control may be implemented to reduce the risk of TB in children.

In many countries, people with HIV are living longer than those with diabetes. This post will hopefully teach the basics of a complex disease and demystify some of the potential diseases you need to consider in those who are severely immunosuppressed. While trying to be comprehensive this post can not be exhaustive (as you can imagine any patient with ...

Tuberculosis (TB) is an important cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. [1] The Bacillus Calmette-Gu érin (BCG) vaccine is known to protect against TB disease, in particular meningitis and disseminated TB, albeit to varying extent. [2] While BCG has for long been considered to protect against progression from latent TB infection to TB disease, there is emerging evidence that BCG vaccination might additionally protect against infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb). [2–3] Recent studies found reduced risk for interferon gamma release assay (IGRA) conversion among BCG-vaccinated compared to non-vaccinated children.

AbstractTo present an unrecognized vascular complication of bacillus Calmette-Gu érin (BCG) therapy administered for superficial bladder carcinoma. We also review the potential mimickers for primary angiitis of the central nervous system (PACNS) as well as complications of intravesical BCG therapy. An 89-year-old Caucasian man with a history of relapsing high-grade bladder carc inoma treated with intravesical BCG presented with recurring episodes of right upper limb paresthesia with clumsiness and dysarthria. Magnetic resonance imaging of the head revealed multiple predominantly left-sided frontotemporal micronodula...

The Bacillus Calmette –Guérin (BCG) vaccine protects against disseminated tuberculosis (TB) and TB meningitis and is one of the most widely used vaccines worldwide. BCG has been included in the national immunization program in Taiwan since 1965.1 Since then, healthy neonates in Taiwan were immunized 24 h after birth with the Tokyo-172–based BCG vaccine until 2016, when the recommended BCG immunization timing was changed to 5–8 months of age.

Abstract Although in the last two decades the World Health Organization (WHO) has introduced tuberculosis as "a threat to global", the vaccination with the Mycobacterium bovis Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) is the only way for the prevention of this fatal infectious disease. Despite of the efficacy of BCG vaccine especially against infants' meningitis, it has still some limitations due to a variety of adverse effects. Many studies have evaluated the side effects of different strains of BCG vaccines in different countries. In Iran, some studies have been done so far to evaluate the adverse effects of 1173...
