MalaCards based summary: Cat-Scratch Disease, also known as cat scratch disease, is related to neuroretinitis and bartonellosis, and has symptoms including regional lymphadenopathy, headache and chills. An important gene associated with Cat-Scratch Disease is HTRA1 (HtrA Serine Peptidase 1), and among its related pathways are Mitochondrial protein import and Tuberculosis. Affiliated tissues include lymph node, lymph node and eye.
Disease Ontology:10 A bartonellosis that results in infection located in lymph node, has material basis in Bartonella henselae or has material basis in Bartonella clarridgeiae, which are transmitted by scratch or bite of a kitten, or transmitted by contact of animal's saliva with an eye or through broken skin. The infection has symptom regional lymphadenopathy, has symptom headache, has symptom chills, has symptom backache, and has symptom abdominal pain.
NIH Rare Diseases:45 Cat scratch disease is an infectious illness caused by the bacteria bartonella. it is believed to be transmitted by cat scratches, bites, or exposure to cat saliva. this self-limiting infectious disease is characterized by a bump or blister at the site of the bite or scratch and swelling and pain in the lymph nodes. other features may include fatigue, headache, achiness, and fever. although cat-scratch disease usually subsides without treatment, antibiotic and/or antimicrobial therapy may help speed recovery. last updated: 11/16/2015
