Atypical Manifestations of Cat-Scratch Disease, United States, 2005-2014.

Emerg Infect Dis 2020 Jul;26(7):1438-1446

Atypical manifestations that can be severe and difficult to diagnosis develop in 5%-20% of patients with cat-scratch disease. To clarify the epidemiology of atypical cat-scratch disease in the United States, we analyzed data from the 2005-2014 MarketScan national health insurance claims databases by using the International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision, Clinical Modification, codes for cat-scratch disease and selected atypical manifestations: retinitis/neuroretinitis, conjunctivitis, neuritis, encephalitis, hepatosplenic disease, osteomyelitis, erythema nodosum, and endocarditis. Atypical cat-scratch disease accounted for 1. Read More

Lack of restricted diffusion in MR imaging as a potential differentiating tool of reactive lymph node in cat scratch disease from lymphoma or abscess.

Radiol Case Rep 2020 Aug 9;15(8):1180-1183. Epub 2020 Jun 9.

State University of New York Upstate Medical University, Department of Radiology, 750 East Adams Street, Syracuse, NY, 13210, USA.

Cat scratch disease is an infection caused by Bartonella Henselae with characteristic presentation of lymphadenopathy. Despite self-limited nature of the disease in most cases, it accounts for many lymph node biopsies performed since its imaging features can mimic lymphoma in appearance, thus requiring additional invasive procedures. Lack of restricted diffusion may be helpful in distinguishing imaging feature of reactive lymph nodes with caseating necrosis seen in cat scratch disease from lymphoma or abscess. Read More

Bartonella neuroretinitis (cat-scratch disease).

Pract Neurol 2020 Jun 16. Epub 2020 Jun 16.

Department of Neurology, Beaumont Hospital, Dublin, Ireland.

We report a patient with cat-scratch disease presenting with meningitis and neuroretinitis. This condition, caused by has a worldwide distribution and is among the most common infective causes of neuroretinitis. Bartonella neuroretinitis is a rare but under-recognised mimic of optic neuritis; it should be suspected in a patient with an infective prodrome whose fundus shows optic disc oedema and a macular star.

Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis is associated with Bartonella henselae infection in a patient with multiple susceptibility genes.

Ann Clin Microbiol Antimicrob 2020 Jun 9;19(1):28. Epub 2020 Jun 9.

Department of Intensive Care Unit, The First Affiliated Hospital of USTC, Division of Life Science and Medicine, University of Science and Technology of China, 17 Lujiang Road, Hefei, Anhui, China.

Background: Adult-onset hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is a rare and life-threatening condition, which is often triggered by certain types of infection, cancer and numerous autoimmune diseases; however, of the numerous infectious triggers associated with HLH, the consequences of Bartonella henselae infection have been rarely reported.

Case Presentation: A 48-year-old female presented with a 20-day history of intermittent fever accompanied by systemic rash, fatigue, anorexia and weight loss later she developed shock and unconsciousness. Blood tests showed a reduction of leukocyte, anemia and thrombocytopenia, and pathological results of a bone marrow biopsy confirmed hemophagocytic activity. Read More

Disseminated Cat Scratch Disease in Pediatric Patients in Hawai'i.

Hawaii J Health Soc Welf 2020 May;79(5 Suppl 1):64-70

Department of Pediatrics, John A. Burns School of Medicine, University of Hawai'i at Mānoa, Honolulu, HI.

Cat scratch disease is known to be a generally benign, self-resolving illness associated with non-specific symptoms, including lymphadenopathy, fever, fatigue, anorexia, and headaches. However, it can also cause disseminated disease with a wide range of manifestations, including liver and spleen microabscesses, osteomyelitis, encephalitis, and uveitis. Eighteen pediatric cases of disseminated cat scratch disease at a single center in Hawai'i are described. Read More

Survey of Bartonella species in cats from Abruzzo region, Italy.

Vet Ital 2020 Apr 24;56(1). Epub 2020 Apr 24.

Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale dell'Abruzzo e del Molise "G. Caporale".

Cat scratch disease (CSD) is a zoonotic disease, caused predominantly by Bartonella henselae and transmitted to humans through a scratch or bite of the cat. Cat represents the principal reservoir and healthy carrier of Bartonella, which is mainly transmitted, among cats, by the flea Ctenocephalides felis. During 2014, fifty‑two samples of whole blood and sera were collected randomly from cats in Abruzzo region and were examined by real-time PCR and IFAT tests, respectively. Read More

Department of Otorhinolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, Hospital de Braga, Braga, Portugal.

Cat-scratch disease (CSD) is one of the most common causes of infectious cervicofacial lymphadenopathies in children, adolescents, and young adults. With this case report, we highlight the wide spectrum of atypical manifestations of CSD in an elderly patient who presented not only with cervicofacial lymphadenopathies but also parotid enlargement, and Parinaud's oculoglandular syndrome which comprises granulomatous nonsuppurative conjunctivitis with adjacent ipsilateral preauricular lymphadenopathy. A high index of suspicion is needed to correctly diagnose and treat this clinical entity. Read More

Cat scratch disease (CSD) in humans is caused by infection with or other spp. The name of the disease reflects the fact that patients frequently have a history of contact (often involving bites or scratches) with infected cats. Patients with CSD typically develop lesions at the site where the skin is broken together with regional lymphadenopathy but may go on to exhibit systemic symptoms and with deep-seated infections at a range of sites including the eye.

Background: Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease, known as histiocytic necrotizing lymphadenitis, is a benign, self-limiting and systemic disorder involving lymph nodes with unknown aetiology. First reported in Japan, there has been an increase in its incidence globally. Because of its non-specific clinical features, the disease can be easily mistaken for other forms of lymphadenitis with a high rate of misdiagnosis and mistreatment, posing a considerable challenge.

A total of 100 domestic cats from Luanda (Angola) were tested for the presence of antibodies against Bartonella henselae and spotted fever group of Rickettsia (SFGR) using indirect immunofluorescence assay (IFA). Molecular screening targeting the riboflavin synthase (ribC) gene for Bartonella and outer membrane protein B (ompB) gene for Rickettsia, using conventional PCR and sequencing was also performed in cat´s blood samples. Sixty-six percent of the cats from Luanda had IgG antibodies against Bartonella species but none of them had antibodies against SFGR. Read More
