Bartonella (Rochalimaea) quintana infections

Abstract: Bartonella (formerly Rochalimaea) quintana is the etiological agent of trench fever, a disease extensively reported during the World Wars. Recent molecular biology approaches have allowed dramatic extension of the spectrum of Bartonella infections. B. quintana is now also recognized as an etiological agent of fever and bacteremia, endocarditis, bacillary angiomatosis, and chronic lymphadenopathy. Human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients and/or homeless people are the most vulnerable to infection. Poverty… Show more

“…Other expressions of infection by these agents are Oroya fever, which progresses with severe anemia caused by erythrocytic parasitism [1], and trench fever, characterized by recurrent fever associated with infection by Bartonella quintana [7]. In addition to these characteristic manifestations, psychiatric manifestations may occur, such as bipolar disorder, neurological disorders, such as Leber neuroretinitis, and dementia in immunodeficient HIV patients [8].…”
