Carrions Disease

Carrion's disease is an infectious disease caused by a microorganism of the genus Bartonella. Two species have been described, the bacilliformis type and the verrugiformis type. These bacteria are parasites of human red blood and histiocytic cells. The bacilliformis type produces two stages of the disease, a febrile acute hemolytic anemia known as "Oroya fever," followed by a granulomatous mucocutaneous eruption known as "Verruga Peruana." The verrugiformis type produces only the verrucose stage.
