  • Carrions disease

    Carrion's disease or Bartonellosis is an infectious disease produced by Bartonella bacilliformis. The organism is transmitted by the bite of the sand fly, especially Lutzomia verrucarum. The clinical symptoms of bartonellosis are pleomorphic and some patients from endemic areas may be asymptomatic. The two classical clinical presentations are the acute phase and the chronic phase, corresponding to the two different host cell types invaded by the bacterium (red blood cells and endothelial cells).
