Cat Scratch Disease in its most typical form begins with the development of an initial skin lesion a few days following a cat scratch. Rarely there is some other mode of inoculation into the skin. About three weeks later striking enlargement of the regional lymph nodes develops. There may be local redness and tenderness, or the nodes may be virtually insensitive. Fever and systemic symptoms are usually present. The nodes may gradually recede without treatment or proceed to suppuration with the development of pus, sterile on all culture media.
