Infection with Bartonella henselae has been associated with cat scratch disease, bacillary angiomatosis, peliosis hepatis and febrile bacteremia syndrome. Infection with Bartonella quintana has been associated with trench fever and bacillary angiomatosis in both HIV positive and negative individuals.
IgG crossreactivity between B. henselae and B. Quintana may occur at any titer; however, the infecting species will typically have the higher IgG titer. Crossreactivity of IgM between the two species is limited and typically is not seen.
Diagnosis of infections of the central nervous system can be accomplished by demonstrating the presence of intrathecally-produced specific antibody. However, interpreting results is complicated by low antibody levels found in CSF, passive transfer of antibody from blood, and contamination via bloody taps.

Provides information regarding the medical device classification for laboratory test kits and reagents. Tests may be classified as cleared or approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and used per manufacturer instructions, or as products that do not undergo full FDA review and approval, and are then labeled as an Analyte Specific Reagent (ASR) product.
This test was developed and its analytical performance characteristics have been determined by Quest Diagnostics Infectious Disease. It has not been cleared or approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The FDA has determined that such clearance or approval is not necessary. This assay has been validated pursuant to the CLIA regulations and is used for clinical purposes.
CPT Code Information
