The prevalence of both bacteremia and seropositivity in cats is usually highest in warm and humid tropical countries. The worldwide distribution of cat scratch disease (CSD), a zoonotic disease caused mainly by the scratch of a B. henselae–infected cat, follows a similar pattern. Limited information is available about CSD in either humans or the feline reservoir in the Caribbean region.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||CDC||Journal:||Emerging Infectious Diseases||Volume:||11||Issue:||7||Start page:||1146||End page:||1147||Copyright (published version):||2018 the Authors||Keywords:||Bartonella henselae; Caribbean; Cat Scratch Disease; Domestic cats; Jamaica||DOI:||10.3201/eid1107.050115||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
