General & Family Physician 's  Response

Meconium aspiration means that child passed faeces during delivery and child ingested such fluid. Usually fluid enters lung of child and causes infection. BCG may cause seizure. However, child passed 12 days later, may be due to meconium aspiration effect or some other disease. I am sorry to learn about the loss of the child.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
