Rapid identification of Bartonella henselae by real-time polymerase chain reaction in a patient with cat scratch disease



Rapid identification of Bartonella henselae by real-time polymerase chain reaction in a patient with cat scratch disease



Diagnostic Microbiology and Infectious Disease 53(1): 75-77



We report a localized submandibular lymph node infection in a patient with cat scratch disease. Directly performing real-time polymerase chain reaction assay on the biopsy sample, Bartonella henselae DNA was simultaneously detected and identified.
