Bartonellosis, also known as Carrion’s disease, is the term for infections caused by Bartonella bacilliformis. The disease may present in one of two fashions: either Oroya fever, which is an acute febrile anemia associated with a high mortality rate, or a more benign verruga peruana, which has cutaneous lesions only.
