> Dear all:
>
> In early February 1999, a local hospital here in Chile made a tragic
> mistake:  instead of vaccinating 15 newborns against tuberculosis, they
> instead received a shot of the bladder-cancer fighting drug BCG.  The
> impact on their immune system has been severe.  Although they have
> continued to receive treatment, the families of these babies are concerned
> and are seeking independent information and guidance on how their children
> might best be treated.  We know that this is a very unusual case and that
> not much literature is available.  Unfortunately, the hospital has not
been
> forthcoming about the error (in fact, the mistake was not even made public
> until April 22, after Center for Disease Control test confirmed the
> presence of BCG in the babies bloodstreams) and has been even more
hermetic
> about possible treatments and long-lasting effects.

> My nephew is one of the children involved.

> If anyone knows where we can turn for informed guidance on how to cope
with
> this terrible situation, please contact me by e mail at kattyk@ctcreuna.cl
