Abstract

Sternal osteomyelitis is an uncommon complication of Calmette-Guérin bacillus vaccination. Herein we describe a 4-month-old Taiwanese infant with a growing parasternal mass resulting from sternal osteomyelitis. By using DNA sequencing analysis, we identified the etiology as Calmette-Guérin bacillus vaccination.
