Concurrence of cat-scratch disease and paradoxical tuberculosis-IRIS lymphadenopathy: a case report

Patients with AIDS may be directly affected by infection or mycobacterial IRIS, particularly if they are recently untreated for HIV. Antiretroviral therapy began seven weeks after the patient's CD4 count was established, according to the patient's CD4 count. The first month of ART fever recurred, as well as cervical lymph node inflammation. The patient remembered being scratched by a stray cat two weeks before his new symptoms began, A posteriori, A posteriori. Conclusions Co-infection with TB and Bartonella presenting with lymphadenitis is atypical. Cat-scratch disease can be a rare medical manifestation of Bartonella disease among patients with HIV, but cooccurrence of bartonellosis and paradoxical IRIS has never been reported before. In the case of acute deterioration or partial response to therapy, especially if they have a history of cat exposure, early testing for Bartonella infection may be helpful, especially if they have a history of cat exposure since the clinical picture can be indistinguishable.
