BCG lymphadenitis is the most common complication of BCG vaccination.
The aim was to determine the role of needle aspiration and surgical excision in the management of suppurative Bacillus Calmette Guerin (BCG) lymphadenitis. This prospective study was done in Rafha Central Hospital, over 1.5 years.
