Abstract: Bacillary angiomatosis is a disorder of neovascular proliferation involving skin and lymph nodes of immunosuppressed patients. Bartonella henselae or Bartonella quintana have been inculpated as causative by direct culture or PCR amplification of DNA sequences. Here, we report the clinical evolution of a patient infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) whose B. quintana infection was diagnosed by PCR.
