Diseases caused by bacteria in the current genus Bartonella, which once plagued the soldiers of World War I as trench fever, remained somewhat obscure until appearing as opportunistic infections in AIDS patients and homeless patients in urban areas in the early s. Now characterized as reemerging, bacteria in the genus Bartonella are fastidious, Gram-negative, facultative intracellular pathogens with a unique intraerythrocytic lifestyle.

Bartonellae usually exist in two specific habitats: the gut of the obligately bloodsucking arthropod vector, where they are exposed to toxic concentrations of heme, and the bloodstream of the mammalian host with deprivation of access to heme and iron 4. The ability of these bacteria to be transmitted by bloodsucking arthropods facilitates survival and dispersion while avoiding the host immune system. Over the past 20 years, there has been a rapid increase in the number of Bartonella species, with 45 species now designated and with some species containing more than one subspecies Table 1.

Bartonellosis: Global Status

New species and subspecies are constantly being proposed, as evidenced by the description of Bartonella vinsonii subsp. Additionally, Bartonella isolates and candidate species from a wide range of animal reservoirs have been described but not yet assigned new species designations and will undoubtedly further expand this growing genus of bacteria.

Bartonellosis is endemic to certain regions in Peru and neighboring South American countries within valleys with similar altitudes and conditions [ 1 , 4 ]. The pathogenicity of the bacteria includes a massive intraerythrocytic invasion and proliferation, resulting in hemolytic anemia and septicemia [ 7 ]. Some patients go on to develop a chronic phase, characterized by a non-scarring, vascularized, verrucous skin lesion commonly known as the Peruvian Wart [ 1 ].


Children in endemic areas are more likely to develop these wart-like lesions and resolution occurs spontaneously but may take several weeks to months [ 1 , 9 ]. Concomitant infections have been associated with the immunosuppression induced by the acute phase of the disease.Yoselevitz, and A.
