Answer

Consultation with an infectious disease specialist should be sought in cases of atypical catscratch disease or in cases of catscratch disease in immunocompromised patients. Consultation with a neurologist is indicated for patients with CNS involvement, and evaluation with an ophthalmologist may be needed in patients with any visual changes.
