Project Description

Part of lecture series for Tariq Bhatti, MD (Duke Eye Center, Neuro-Ophthalmology). The illustration was used in a talk at the North Carolina Society of Eye Physicians and Surgeons. This illustration was to highlight ‘bartonella henselae neuroretinitis’ and how it is transmitted (cat scratch contaminated with flea feces) with 2 side effects, in this case, regional lymphadenopathy and the neuroretinitis (presenting as a macular star formation).
