Bacillary Angiomatosis in an Immunocompetent Child with a Grafted Traumatic Wound

Abstract: Bacillary angiomatosis is an infectious disease which usually develops in immunocompromised patients. Contact with cats is implicated in its pathogenesis. We report a seven-year-old immunocompetent boy with bacillary angiomatosis without a history of direct contact with cats. The clinical diagnosis of bacillary angiomatosis was made following histopathological examination of a biopsy sample from the infected facial wound, in the vicinity of which angiomatous lesions had developed. Surprisingly, similar lesions… Show more

“…Bacillary angiomatosis was first described several decades before in HIV-positive patients (13) as an opportunistic infection, but it may also occur in the context of other conditions that may impair the immune status, such as chronic lymphocytic leukemia (11,14,15), chemotherapy (16), systemic corticotherapy (17), solid organ transplantation (18)(19)(20), hepatitis B infection (3). Nevertheless, immunocompetent patients can be affected by this cutaneous disorder (6,17,(21)(22)(23)(24). It can also appear in pediatric patients (20,24,25).…”

“…[1,2] Most patients with BA have been exposed to cats. [1][2][3][4][5]12,13] We describe an atypical case of BA in an immunocompetent woman with no previous exposure to cats.…”

“…[2] There are very few reported cases of BA in immunocompetent patients. [3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11] The skin is the most frequently affected site, presenting as papules, warts, pedunculated and subcutaneous nodules (rarely ulcerated or bleeding), or hyperkeratotic plaques. [1,2] Most patients with BA have been exposed to cats.…”
