QUOTE- "We report a fatal case of Bartonella henselae bacteremic patient.

He had negative serology and PCRs from whole blood and liquid culture...

When considered, bartonellosis diagnosis can be still challenging because of technical limitations."

"Technical limitations?" How about NOT doing any research on these diseases? Whose fault is that?

or not having doctors who know how to diagnose clinically

I didn't see the whole paper, but the case was probably detected in Brazil:
Author information [5 authors are from Brazil]
1
1 Department of Medicine, University of Campinas (UNICAMP), Campinas, Brazil.
2
2 Western University of Health Sciences, Pomona, California.

I am not saying that this paper has no value, but I wonder if researchers and doctors in the US might dismiss it before even reading it because of its origin.

How many doctors know anything at all about Bartonella?? Surely very, very few. We seem to be living in the dark ages.
