BCG Scar

Hello, I have been asked to confirm that a scar on the arm of a young chinese male is a BCG scar - the scar is quite large and is formed like the hash sign on a key board. Would anyone know if the administration of BCG immunisation in China results in this type of scar.
Thanks

Re: BCG Scar

You can't confirm it on a scar. Draw labs for antibodies, the scar could be anything.
