Abstract

Erythema, induration at a previous BCG inoculation site highly specific feature of Kawasaki disease. It can also occur with measles though very rare (1). We find BCG reactivation in an 8 months old girl (Fig-1). Infants are protected from measles by the transplacentally acquired immunity from mother till the age of 4 to 6 months and these antibodies are undetectable by the age of 9 months(2). It means 8 months age is critical for development of measles in unvaccinated infant.
