Name Angiomatosis, Bacillary
Synonyms Angiomatoses, Bacillary | Angiomatoses, Bacillary Epithelioid | Angiomatoses, Epithelioid | Angiomatosis, Bacillary Epithelioid | Angiomatosis, Epithelioid | Bacillary Angiomatoses | Bacillary Angiomatosis | Bacillary Epithelioid Angiomatoses | Bacillary Epithelioid Angiomatosis | Epithelioid Angiomatoses | Epithelioid Angiomatoses, Bacillary | Epithelioid Angiomatosis | Epithelioid Angiomatosis, Bacillary
Definition A reactive vascular proliferation that is characterized by the multiple tumor-like lesions in skin, bone, brain, and other organs. Bacillary angiomatosis is caused by infection with gram-negative Bartonella bacilli (such as BARTONELLA HENSELAE), and is often seen in AIDS patients and other IMMUNOCOMPROMISED HOSTS.
