Abstract

the incidence of childhood tuberculosis is on average 10 per 100,000 inhabitants in France in 1994 but is higher, 34-55 p 100,000, in the parisian region (City of Paris and suburbs) and among children born from recent immigrants. The source of infection is often a close relative, and earlier in life the infection more acute (miliary and meningitis) the resulting disease. From a study conducted during the year 1993 in the Paris suburban department of Val de Marne, it may be concluded that, at the age of six, 99 % of the children have been vaccinated but in less than 10 % by the intradermal route. Only 75 % of the vaccinees were tuberculin positive (≥5 mm after intradermal injection of 10 U). To improve the quality and the coverage of BCG vaccination it is strongly suggested to vaccinate the infants at birth, by interdermal injection and to consider the BCG scar as the indicator of effective vaccination.
