The genus Bartonella comprises two human-specific pathogens and a growing number of zoonotic or animal-specific species. Domesticated as well as wild mammals can serve as reservoir hosts for the zoonotic agents and transmission to humans may occur by blood sucking arthropods or by direct blood to blood contact. Humans may come into intimate contact with free-ranging mammals during hunting, especially during evisceration with bare hands, when accidental blood to blood contact frequently occurs…

Bartonella schoenbuchensis Isolated from the Blood of a French Cow
The objective in this study was to investigate the presence of Bartonella sp.
Acquisition of nonspecific Bartonella strains by the northern grasshopper mouse (Onychomys leucogaster).
Evidence that Bartonella species can 'jump' between host species is presented, and the observed rate at which Bart onella jumps from a donor host species to the grasshopper mouse was directly proportional to a metric of donor host density and to the prevalence of BartOnella in the donor host, and inversely proportional to the same parameters for the grass Hopper mouse.
Bartonella dromedarii sp. nov. isolated from domesticated camels (Camelus dromedarius) in Israel.
A comprehensive multilocus sequence typing (MLST) analysis based on nine genetic loci identified seven sequence types of the new dromedary isolates and designated these isolates as a novel Bartonella sp.
Emerging rodent-associated Bartonella: a threat for human health?
A closer look is taken at published clinical cases of bartonellosis connected with rodent-associated Bartonella species, some of which have been newly described in recent years, to determine explanatory factors for this unexpected finding.
Bartonella bovis Bermond et al. sp. nov. and Bartonella capreoli sp. nov., isolated from European ruminants.
Hybridization values when testing type strains of recognized Bartonella species, obtained with the nuclease/trichloroacetic acid method, support the creation of two novel species.
Emerging Bartonella in humans and animals in Asia and Australia.
The rate of Bartonella infection was found to be high in arthropod ectoparasitic vectors, mammals, and febrile patients in these tropical zones.
Bartonella Infections in Deer Keds (Lipoptena cervi) and Moose (Alces alces) in Norway
The results may indicate that long-term bacteremia in the moose represents a reservoir of infection and that L. cervi acts as a vector for the spread of infection of Bartonella spp.
Description of Bartonella ancashensis sp. nov., isolated from the blood of two patients with verruga peruana.
Three novel isolates recovered from the blood of two patients enrolled in a clinical trial for the treatment of chronic stage Bartonella bacilliformis infection in Caraz, Ancash, Peru were found to be genetically identical to each other for the genes assessed, but distinct from any known species of the genus Bart onella.
Detection of Bartonella DNA in roe deer (Capreolus capreolus) and in ticks removed from deer
The results show that the roe deer may be a reservoir for B. capreoli and B. bovis, and the infection detected in I. ricinus ticks suggests that ticks may act as a Bartonella reservoir and vector.
Bartonellosis: A One Health Perspective
Improved in the diagnostic sensitivity of laboratory tests have allowed researchers to identify a spectrum of Bartonella species in novel host species, including domestic animals and wildlife, and it is imperative that researchers determine the consequences of Bart onella spp.


Bartonella alsatica sp. nov., a new Bartonella species isolated from the blood of wild rabbits.
Bartonella species are considered as emerging human pathogens, with at least six different species pathogenic or possibly pathogenic for humans. However, little is known about Bartonella
Bartonella tribocorum sp. nov., a new Bartonella species isolated from the blood of wild rats.
This new species is distinguished by its trypsin-like activity, the absence of the ability to hydrolyse proline and tributyrin, its 16S rRNA and citrate synthase gene sequences and by whole-DNA hybridization data.
Rats of the genus Rattus are reservoir hosts for pathogenic Bartonella species: an Old World origin for a New World disease?
The data suggest that Rattus species are a reservoir host for pathogenic Bartonella species and are consistent with a hypothesized Old World origin for Bart onella species recovered from Rattus Species introduced into the Americas.
Prevalence of Bartonella henselae and Bartonella clarridgeiae in stray cats
The study points out the major role of stray cats as a reservoir of Bartonella spp.
Isolation of a New Subspecies, Bartonella vinsoniisubsp. arupensis, from a Cattle Rancher: Identity with Isolates Found in Conjunction with Borrelia burgdorferiand Babesia microti among Naturally Infected Mice
ABSTRACT Bacteremia with fever due to a novel subspecies of Bartonella vinsonii was found in a cattle rancher. The subspecies shared major characteristics of the genus Bartonella in terms of most
Detection and identification of two Bartonella henselae variants in domestic cats in Germany
To determine the prevalence of bacteremia caused by Bartonella henselae in domestic cats in the region of Freiburg, Germany, we investigated culture of blood from 100 cats from 89 different
The expanding spectrum of Bartonella infections: II. Cat-scratch disease.
Clinical response to treatment with drugs that are effective in vitro against these organisms has usually been dramatic and these agents not only appear to provide the most dramatic treatment response in patients with BA, BP and PRFB and other manifestations of B. elizabethae infections in humans, they appear to be the most promising agents for treatment of persons with both typical and atypical CSD.
Bartonella vinsonii subsp. berkhoffii subsp. nov., isolated from dogs; Bartonella vinsonii subsp. vinsonii; and emended description of Bartonella vinsonii.
Two bacterial strains were similar to Bartonella species, as determined by a number of phenotypic criteria, including growth characteristics, biochemical reactions, and cell wall fatty acid composition, and it is believed that strains 93-C01(T) and G7464 should be placed in a separate subspecies of B. vinsonii.
Coinfection with Bartonella clarridgeiae and Bartonella henselae and with different Bartonella henselae strains in domestic cats
The coinfection of cats with two Bartonella species or variants of the same species raises concern about the possibility of dual infection in humans and the development of a polyvalent vaccine targeted against the most pathogenic or invasive strains may be a means of protecting cats and man from infection.
Bartonella spp. isolated from wild and domestic ruminants in North America.
Findings indicate potential for inter- and intraspecies transmission among ruminants, as well as risk that these Bartonella spp.
