About Bartonellosis

Bartonellosis is a rare infectious disease found only in certain regions of South America. It is caused by infection with the bacterium Bartonella bacilliformis (B. bacilliformis), which is transmitted by sandflies. Bartonellosis is usually characterized by two distinctive stages: a sudden (acute), potentially life-threatening illness associated with high fever and decreased levels of circulating red blood cells (i.e., hemolytic anemia) and a chronic, benign skin (cutaneous) eruption consisting of raised, reddish-purple nodules.
