DRUMMOND, Marina Rovani et al. Chronic lymphadenopathy caused by a Brazilian strain of Bartonella henselae. Rev. Inst. Med. trop. S. Paulo [online]. 2017, vol.59, e62.  Epub 04-Set-2017. ISSN 1678-9946.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/s1678-9946201759062.

Bartonella henselae is a relevant causative agent of bartonelloses in humans. We described an immunocompetent patient with clinical manifestation of chronic cervical lymphadenopathy after a cat-scratch in her forearm. This case shows B. henselae infection persistence even after prolonged antibiotic treatment.

Palavras-chave : Bartonella; Cat-scratch disease; Lymph nodes.
