These include tick-borne Rickettsia, Bartonella
, Babesia, Powassan Virus and Anaplasma/Erlichia.
Cat-scratch disease is caused by the Gram-negative, intracellular bacteria Bartonella
Cat scratch disease is caused by the bacteria Bartonella
henselae, which is spread primarily by fleas among cats and less commonly among dogs.
henselae immunoglobulin (Ig) M and/or IgG were positive in all patients.
A (http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/eid/article/22/10/16-0115_article) study conducted by doctors from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) proved cat-scratch disease, an infection with Bartonella
bacteria that is believed to be transmitted by cat scratches and bites, is actually more impactful and deadly than what was originally assumed.
A 16S rRNA PCR was performed and the PCR products sequenced, which confirmed the presence of Bartonella
quintana DNA in the resected aortic heart valve.
henselae commonly presents as fever and localized lymphadenopathy in children or adolescents with a history of exposure to a scratch from a kitten or cat.
Cat scratch disease (CSD) is caused by Bartonella
henselae a hemotropic bacterium that infects human, domestic and wild mammals.
Literature review shows that the ocular manifestations of Bartonella
henselae are broad, leading to many missed diagnoses.
Human bartonellosis is caused by various species of Bartonella
. Nowadays, there are several species of this genus that can infect humans including B.
