Abstract

Reactive arthritis is an infrequent but potentially severe complication of intravesical BCG for bladder cancer that typically presents with polyarthritis and fever during induction. The most common treatments include immediate discontinuation of BCG and systemic anti-inflammatory therapy. Further studies are needed to determine prevalence, pathophysiology, and long-term prognosis.
