Parapharyngeal tuberculoid mass: a rare complication of Bacillus
Calmette-Guérin therapy for urothelial carcinoma in situ
Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) is commonly used in treating superficial
urothelial carcinoma. Though rare, local and systemic disseminated BCG
infections are important to recognize as they require prolonged
antimicrobial therapy and surveillance. We present an unusual case of a
parapharyngeal space mass as manifestation of disseminated BCG following
urothelial carcinoma treatment.
