How is cat-scratch disease diagnosed?

If you remember that you were bitten or scratched by a cat, your doctor will probably be able to diagnose the illness based on the fact that you were bitten or scratched and then developed painful, swollen lymph nodes. When the diagnosis is not clear, a blood test may help your doctor make the diagnosis.
