Bartonella henselae and Pasteurella multocida infection mnemonic


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!
