Answer

Currently, Bartonella species cause several clinical syndromes, including catscratch disease (with enlarged nodes and other organ involvement), bacteremia, endocarditis, bacillary angiomatosis, peliosis hepatis, Oroya fever, and verruga peruana. The inability to mount an immune response contributes to manifestations observed in immunosuppressed individuals with advanced AIDS and other diseases.
