Abstract: Bartonella spp. are vector-transmitted, blood-borne, intracellular, gram-negative bacteria that can induce prolonged infection in the host. Persistent infections in domestic and wild animals result in a substantial reservoir of Bartonella organisms in nature that can serve as a source for inadvertent human infection (Breitschwerdt and Kordick, 2000). Blood and spleen samples of 61 animals from Lithuania were PCR-screened. Bartonella spp. was detected using primers complementary to the gltA and 16S rRNA genes. Bartonella infection rate in blood samples (61.1%) was higher than in spleen (48.1%). The results show that wild cervids (roe deer, red deer, moose) may be a reservoir for Bartonella schoenbuchensis and Bartonella capreoli
