In brief: ?
Your question seems to suggest that your mom's condition is recurrent which is quite unusual.
Cat scratch disease is an uncommon infection that usually affects immunocompromised people. Once treated it should go away for good. If your immune system is good you should not worry about it. Maybe she has something else?
