Bartonella are intracellular bacterial pathogens that live primarily within the lining of blood vessels. Bartonella henselae can cause cat-scratch fever and endocarditis. It is tick-borne and a common Lyme disease coinfection.

A common sign of the illness are stretch-mark-like rashes that run more-or-less parallel on the skin.

Neurological symptoms include blurred vision, numbness in the extremities, memory loss, balance problems, headaches, ataxia (unsteady gait), and tremors.

Bartonellosis also sometimes triggers psychiatric manifestations.
