Abstract :

CSD is a common infectious disease of zoonotic importance, associated mainly with lymphadenopathy in children, adolescents, and young adults. The first case was reported in 1931, and it is caused by Bartonella henselae, with the reservoirs being domestic animals such as cats, guinea pigs, rabbits, and occasionally dogs. Most cases can recover on their own without any treatment; however, if treatment is required, rifampicin is the drug of choice for CSD.
