Bartonella.This group of alpha proteobacteria are unique among pathogens in that they cause angiogenic lesions. Angiogenesis is the process of creating new blood vessels.Bartonella quintana. This organism was first identified as the causative agent of louse-born trench fever during World War I. Up to 800 000 were infected More...
