Bartonellosis: Symptoms and Treatment
Bartonella are bacteria that are harmful, and can cause infections in humans and animals. At one point in time, it was thought that these bacteria, causing bartonellosis, only affected people or animals with a “mild, acute, and self-limiting illness,” according to LymeDisease.org. In more recent decades, doctors have begun to recognize that Bartonella can result in chronic infections. Because Bartonella mostly live in the lining of blood vessels, it’s easy for them to recycle and repopulate within a mammal’s blood, leading to infections that continue and begin again.
