Abstract

VELHO, Paulo Eduardo Neves Ferreira et al. Bartonella henselae AS A PUTATIVE CAUSE OF CONGENITAL CHOLESTASIS. Rev. Inst. Med. trop. S. Paulo [online]. 2016, vol.58, 56.  Epub July 11, 2016. ISSN 1678-9946.  https://doi.org/10.1590/s1678-9946201658056.

Severe anemia and cholestatic hepatitis are associated with bartonella infections. A putative vertical Bartonella henselae infection was defined on the basis of ultrastructural and molecular analyses in a three-year-old child with anemia, jaundice and hepatosplenomegaly since birth. Physicians should consider bartonellosis in patients with anemia and hepatitis of unknown origin.

Keywords : Bartonella; Hepatitis; Cholestasis; Disease Transmission; Infectious.
