Answer

Physical examination findings are usually normal, with occasional detection of well-healed cutaneous scars secondary to cat scratches. Abdominal discomfort, without focal findings, is commonly reported. Lymphadenopathy is present in approximately half the cases. Hepatosplenomegaly, jaundice, and elevated transaminase levels are not associated with this condition.
