Males were the most concerned with 57%. Infants are much more represented (61%) than other age groups. The most local reactions are observed: becegites (37%), abscesses (20%), rash (16%), ulcers (15%), and fistula (12%). Accompanying signs of these local reactions are usually represented by a fever (6%) and lymphadenopathy (2%). BCG was injected intradermally in 87% of cases, followed by the intramuscular route (8%) and the subcutaneous route in 5% of cases. According to the classification of severity of the WHO ART, these reactions were severe in 18% of cases, moderate in 69% and severe in 14% of cases. The relation of cause and effect between BCG vaccination and the occurrence of local reactions is well established with 46% of probable cases and 7% of cases while some is possible in 46%, and excluded in 1%.
