Abstract

Bartonella henselae is cat scratch disease's etiological agent; which is considered an endemic infection in Chile. It typically presents as a self-limited regional lymphadenopathy and less frequently with systemic involvement and extranodal or atypical manifestations: hepatosplenic, ocular or musculoskeletal involvement, among others. We present three cases of atypical cat scratch disease with ocular compromise, as neurorretinitis. This review highlights the importance of the active search for ocular complications in patients with disseminated cat scratch disease, leading to possible change in treatment and prognosis of the disease.
