Bartonella species are emerging pathogens. Renewed interest in this group of bacteria has been highlighted by the recent description of new species, which are pathogenic for humans (Bartonella elizabethae and Bartonella clarridgeae), and their association with an increasing number of clinical manifestations, the more prevalent being cat scratch disease, bacillary angiomatosis, and culture-negative endocarditis.
