Disease relevance of Angiomatosis, Bacillary

  • Bartonella henselae causes the vasculoproliferative disorders bacillary angiomatosis and peliosis probably resulting from the release of vasculoendothelial growth factor (VEGF) from infected epithelial or monocytic host cells [1].

High impact information on Angiomatosis, Bacillary


Biological context of Angiomatosis, Bacillary

  • To further investigate the lesion, polymerase chain reaction DNA amplification and sequencing was performed, and the lesion was found to contain DNA sequences identical to those previously established for the agent of bacillary angiomatosis [7].

Gene context of Angiomatosis, Bacillary

  • We report a case of bacillary angiomatosis in an HIV-infected patient with skin, bone, and probably liver involvement, The identification of the agent (B quintana ) was done by polymerase chain reaction in the skin specimen [8].
