Our panel includes ten such organisms: Anaplasma phagocytohilium, Babesia divergens, Bartonella bacilliformis, Ehrlichia chaffeensis, Borrelia recurrentis, Borrelia miyamotoi, Babesia duncani, Bartonella henselae, Babesia microti, and Bartonella quintana
The cut off value was 1: 12 for Ig M and 1: 64 for Ig G using a commercial kit to detect Bartonella henselae and Bartonella quintana
(Vircell IFA Bartonella, Paraque Tecnologico, Granada, Spain).
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.

bacteremia in homeless patients.
In addition to itching and scratching, lice can cause skin infections such as impetigo and, rarely, infection by Bartonella quintana
So too are the genomes of the bacterial pathogens that the body louse transmits to its human hosts: Rickettsia prowazekii (which causes epidemic typhus), Borrelia recurrentis (the agent of relapsing fever) and Bartonella quintana
(which causes trench fever).
