“…However, because of the retrospective nature of our study, all cases of bacillary angiomatosis may not have been included in this analysis; additionally, underreporting of AIDS cases in our setting is common, which may affect our incidence data. Other patients with bacillary angiomatosis, for example those who received transplants 8 , those with neoplasms 13 , those receiving immunosuppressive treatments 17,20 , and normal patients who had contact with cats 4,23 as described in medical literature were not identified in our study.…”

All cases had complete resolution of skin lesions with oral treatment: 4 weeks of clarithromycin (Milde et al, 1995), 6 weeks of erythromycin (Török et al, 1994) and 6 weeks of doxycycline (Petersen et al, 2008). Our case differs from the above series with inadequate response to standard first-line treatment, the need for intravenous antibiotics, the presence of multifocal disease, and the extended duration of antimicrobials required for complete clinical response.…”

“…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).…”
