Rochalimaea henselae infection in acquired immunodeficiency syndrome causing inflammatory disease without angiomatosis or peliosis. Demonstration by immunocytochemistry and corroboration by DNA amplification.


Rochalimaea henselae causes bacillary angiomatosis, bacillary peliosis, and persistent bacteremia. Difficult to cultivate, it is detectable in infected tissues by immunocytochemistry. This technique demonstrated R henselae in autopsy specimens obtained from three deceased patients who had acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, with pathologic tissue changes… (More)
