Abstract:

We report a case of bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) infection of an axillary-femoral bypass graft presenting approximately 10 months after the initiation of intravesicular bacillus Calmette-Guérin for the treatment of bladder cancer. The patient’s clinical course included removal of the bypass graft and antimycobacterial treatment with isoniazid, rifampin, and ethambutol for 9 months.
