TARAZONA F, Augusto et al. Terapia antibiótica para el manejo de la bartonelosis o enfermedad de Carrión en eL Perú. Rev. perú. med. exp. salud publica [online]. 2006, vol.23, n.3, pp.188-200. ISSN 1726-4634.

Carrion disease is an arthropod-borne disease endemic in Peru. It is caused by Bartonella bacilliformis. The Ministry of Health has recently issued a technical guideline for use in all health installations for the care of patients with Bartonellosis or Carrion disease, through standardization of the diagnosis, clinical management and therapeutic schemes, in accordance to current available scientific evidence and incorporating the national medical experience. This responds to the needs of the patients and it is efficacious and cost-beneficial. The document gathers sections of the national guideline, with special attention being provided to antibiotic management, defining first choice medications, dose and length of administration, based on the type of patient and the clinical form of Bartonellosis.

Keywords : Carrion disease; teraphy; Guideline; Peru.
