Abstract

We present two cases of cat-scratch disease. Case 1: A 44-year-old woman was presented at our hospital with chief complaint of the right epitrochlear masses. MR imaging showed epitrochlear lymphadenopathy, appearing as heterogeneous masses with surrounding edema. Case 2: A 8-year-old boy was presented at our hospital because of fever and bilateral cervical lymphadenopathy. CT demonstrated soft tissue masses with mixed density and central low attenuation. Diagnosis of both cases was confirmed by the detection of IgG antibodies to Bartonella henselae with an indirect fluorescence antibody method.
