Abstract: _To investigate the characteristics of tuberculin skin test reactivity in the Pakaanóva Indians, in Amazonia, Brazil, after revaccination of all study participants with bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG). METHODS_ The investigation was designed as a post- BCG vaccination purified protein derivative (PPD) survey. Data included PPD readings, age, sex, nutritional status, place of residence, previous tuberculosis, physical examinations and BCG status. Bivariate and multivariate logistic regression analyses were conducted. RESULTS_ About 90% (n 505) of the total population participated. One third (32.1%) of the subjects presented induration 10 mm at 72 h. Induration sizes showed weak linear correlation with age
