A nightly sand fly activity is limited to early evening — hrs from March through July, the coldest part of the year, which represents the Peruvian winter, and B as nighttime temperatures increase in late August through November late winter and springsand fly activity extends throughout the night.


Analysis of antimicrobial susceptibilities of four strains of B. Interestingly, Bartonella cannot utilize heme-rich scavenger molecules of the host, such as lactoferrin or transferrin, unlike many pathogens.

In fact, a compromised immune state is thought to bartoneelosis to the increased incidence of ej infections seen in infected individuals. The most common symptoms were headaches, followed by malaise and arthralgia. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Rapid PCR assays were used during the Cusco outbreak, and they helped with the confirmation of the initial cases; however, there are no studies about their sensitivity or specificity [41,60].
