Cat Scratch Disease (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Patients diagnosed with CSD who do not require antibiotics are usually seen in follow-up by their doctors in about two to six months; however, if symptoms do not resolve or get worse, the patients should contact their doctor immediately. Patients who are immunocompromised need close (daily to weekly) follow-up even if they respond well with antibiotics; in some cases, these patients need to be hospitalized for treatment of complications. Follow-up is needed to confirm that symptoms (and complications) resolve and do not return.
