Human bartonellosis in found predominantly in Peru, as well as in Ecuador and Colombia. In Peru, the disease is restricted to the valleys of the western-side and a few inter-andean and eastern-slopes of the Andean valleys at altitudes between 1000 and 3200 masl. Most human cases are reported from the regions of Chavin, Nor Oriental del Marañon and Lima. Lutzomyia verrucarum is presumed to be the only vector of human bartonellosis in the valleys of Peru.
