1C11.Y/A44.8 Other forms of bartonellosis



Other forms of Bartonellosis are caused by other species of bacteria in the Bartonella family, such as B. henselae, B. elizabethae, B. quintana, and B. bacilliformis. These bacteria are usually transmitted to humans through contact with infected animals, such as cats and dogs, or through arthropod vectors, such as fleas, ticks, and sandflies.


Diagnosis of other forms of Bartonellosis is based on a combination of clinical presentation and laboratory testing. Laboratory testing may include PCR or serology, or a combination of both.

Differential diagnosis

Other forms of Bartonellosis must be differentiated from other diseases caused by different species of bacteria, such as Brucellosis, Cat Scratch Disease, Lyme Disease, and Relapsing Fever.


Treatment of other forms of Bartonellosis is typically with antibiotics, such as doxycycline, rifampin, or ciprofloxacin.


The prognosis for other forms of Bartonellosis is generally good, but can vary depending on the severity and extent of the infection.
