According to Bergey«s Manual of Systematic Bacteriology Bartonella got his
name after Dr. A. L. Barton who described these.
B. bacilliformis is sensitive to penicillin, streptomycin, chloramphenicol
Human bartonellosis may be manifested as a progressive anaemia (Oroya
fever) or as cutaneous eruption (Verruga peruana).
Human infection is aquired when the female flies take the organism
contained in the blood meal during the nighttime.
