Abstract

The authors examine the most recent data, including personal contributions, regarding the potential causative agents and pathogenic mechanisms of Cat Scratch Disease. The controversial roles of Afipia felis and Rochalimaea henselae are discussed as well as the possible mediators of local injuries and systemic disorders. The direct and indirect diagnostic procedures put forward are indicated. The authors report their own approaches to confirm that serological investigation by IFA appears to be a sensitive and specific diagnostic tool.
