Joint swelling after BCG vaccine. Close-up of the swollen finger of an 80-year-old male patient that occurred following installation of a BCG (Bacillus Calmette-Guerin) vaccine into the bladder. BCG is a vaccine primarily used against tuberculosis (TB). However, it may also be used in immunotherapy to treat and prevent the recurrence of superficial tumours in bladder cancer. Here, the relationship between the vaccine and the inflammation is uncertain.
