Abstract

Abstract Tuberculous meningitis with favourable outcome has been observed in two immunocompetent previously healthy children. The mycobacteria isolated from the cerebrospinal fluid of both patients proved to be Mycobacterium bovis BCG. The patients had been inoculated with BCG, one 5 and the other 6 months before onset of the disease.
