A case of post-vaccination tubercular abscess in thigh of an infant.

We report a rare case of post vaccination tubercular soft tissue abscess on a lateral part of thigh in an immunocompetent infant without underlying source of infection. A soft tissue cold abscess usually results from an underlying bone infection; however, a positive case due to intramuscular hexavalent vaccination was presented in our case.
