Cat Scratch Disease (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
The prognosis for both nonimmunocompromised and immunocompromised CSD patients is very good. Symptoms resolve in about two to five months in nonimmunocompromised patients, and complications are rare. Immunocompromised patients with CSD, even with complications, when appropriately treated with antibiotics, usually recover completely from both CSD and its complications, but the time to full recovery may be extended beyond five months.
