Abstract

A 56-year-old man presented with subacute night sweats, fever, and weight loss with worsening dyspnea. Computed tomography (CT) scan demonstrated miliary pattern of nodules evenly distributed throughout all lung fields. Given the patient’s CT findings and temporal association with Bacille Calmette-Guerin (BCG) immunotherapy for bladder cancer, the patient was diagnosed with disseminated Mycobacterium bovis secondary to BCG bladder instillations.
