She was bedridden because of having ulcer in the area of B.C.G vaccination since 2 months ago .By the birth she had been vaccinated and showed symptoms of fever, restlessness and severe diarrhea. After two months, she got abdominal distension with petechia purpura and generalized lymphadenopathy caused her to be bedridden. In spite of being bedridden for a month and taking several antibiotics, she died and the final reported diagnosis was Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH0) for spread infection of B.C.G.
