An otherwise healthy 9-year-old girl presented with bilateral recurrent anterior uveitis. Thirteen months later, the diagnosis of cat-scratch disease (ocular bartonellosis) was suspected when neuroretinitis appeared. Confirmation was based on serological test results positive for Bartonella henselae. Antibiotic treatment completely cured the disease, and there have been no further manifestations during a follow-up period of 6 years.
