Abstract

BCG intra-vesical instillation is the standard of care for superficial bladder cancer at high risk of relapse and progression. Yet, this treatment can cause dysimmune complications. Osteoarticular manifestations related to BCG therapy are rare and frequently mild. We report a rare case of a severe form successfully treated with Rituximab.
