Bartonella henselae and Pasteurella multocida infection mnemonic

Hello!

Sometimes I confuse the clinical manifestations of these two cat related diseases - Cat scratch disease caused by Bartonella henselae and Pasteurella multocida infection caused by cat bites. 

I probably wouldn't have confused these two in my step 1 days, but the older you get, the more confusing rare diseases become,

Sooo... Mnemonic!

Bartonella hensela infection mnemonic: BARTO HENS!

Bacteremia
Angiomatosis
Retinitis
Transverse myelitis
Oculoglandular syndrome

Hepatis peliosis
Endocarditis
Nodes (Lymphadenopathy)
Skin involvement

Pasteurella multocida infection mnemonic: PCO

Cellulitis and
Osteomyelitis

Relatable because catcall? (PCO: Public Call Office) 

That's all!
This has to be one of the most terrible mnemonics I've made. Oh,  well :P
