Bacillary angiomatosis

4 April 2012, by DOUDIER B. & BROUQUI Ph.

Bacillary angiomatosis is a pseudo-tumoral vasculoproliferative condition that mainly affects immunocompromised patients. It tends to affect the skin but visceral involvement has been reported. It is caused by two pathogens : Bartonella quintana, which is responsible for trench fever, negative haemoculture endocarditis and chronic lymphadenopathy, and Bartonella henselae, which causes cat-scratch disease.
