Abstract

We report a four-month-old girl with a right thigh swelling, an eight-month-old girl with a left thigh swelling, and a five-month-old boy with a left thigh swelling with the final diagnosis of BCG-induced cold abscess as a result of erroneous injection of BCG vaccine into the infants' thigh muscle.
