Abstract

Intratumor bacillus Calmette-Guerin administration is effective for treating chest wall recurrence from carcinoma of the breast in selected patients. Our results suggest that bacillus Calmette-Guerin therapy can be used alone, with systemic chemotherapy, hormonal therapy or in previously irradiated tissue. It represents local treatment for local disease that is well tolerated. Intratumor bacillus Calmette-Guerin treatment is a useful clinical method for the treatment of local chest wall disease.
