Tularemi Gram-negatif, kapsülsüz, aerobik bir kokobasilin patojenik suşu olan Franciella tularensisin neden olduğu nadir görülen bir zoonozdur. Bulaş yolları böcek veya kemirgen ısırığı, hayvanlarla temas, hayvansal ürünlerin tüketilmesi ve suyla olabilmektedir. Tularemili hastaların bazılarında baş ve boyun yerleşimli bulgu ve belirtiler olduğu için, bu bakteriyel enfeksiyonun kulak, burun, boğaz uygulamasında önemli bir yeri vardır. Bu yazıda, dört aydır boğaz ağrısı, yutma güçlüğü, sa… 
OROFARENGEAL TULAREMİ Tularemi, Francisella Tularensis'in neden olduğu zoonotik bir enfeksiyondur. Tavşan ateşi, avcı hastalığı, kene ateşi, O’Hara hastalığı veya Francis hastalığı olarak da bilinir.


Oropharyngeal tularemia – a differential diagnosis of tonsillopharyngitis and cervical lymphadenitis
A case of oropharyngeal tularemia in an 18-year-old girl from Bavaria (Germany) who presented with tonsillopharyngitis and cervical lymphadenitis is reported and prompted renewed interest in this rare infectious disease.
Clinically mild tularemia associated with tick-borne Francisella tularensis.
The strains of F tularensis did not ferment glycerol and thus were identified as type B rather than the more virulent type A, and may occur elsewhere.

One of the biggest tularemia epidemics in Europe is reviewed, reported from the area around Bursa in the northwestern part of Turkey in 1988, where all of the ulceroglandular cases had dermatitis on their hands.
In cases of atypical pneumonia or acute febrile disease with no local symptoms, a history of exposure to hares or rodents or merely living in an endemic region should be sufficient to include tularaemia among differential diagnoses.
A case of tularemia presenting as a dental abscess: case report.
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this report is to present a tularemia case accompanied by a neck mass that easily may be confounded with dental abscess. SUMMARY Francisella tularensis is a potential agent
Tularemia is becoming increasingly important as a differential diagnosis in suspicious neck masses: experience in Turkey
Otolaryngologists should be familiar with head and neck manifestations of tularemia and consider the disease in the differential diagnosis of neck masses in patients presenting with neck mass.
Tularemia: a rare cause of neck mass, evaluation of 33 patients
Because tularemia is a rare infection, its diagnosis is frequently delayed and the symptoms of the patients may last for months without any appropriate treatment.
Three cases of oropharyngeal tularemia in Turkey.
Tularemia should be considered in the differential diagnosis of massive adenotonsillar enlargement and extensive necrotic cervical lymphadenopathy not responding to beta lactam antibiotics as a result of the rising number of tularemia outbreaks outside the classic endemic areas.
Cervical tularaemia in a non-endemic area.
The ulceroglandular form of tularemia should be considered in the differential diagnosis of cervical lymphadenitis, particularly in those not responding to penicillin treatment, as this is the first case described in Asturias, a north coast county of Spain.
Tularemia in Bursa, Turkey: 205 cases in ten years
In this region, tularemia should be considered in differential diagnosis for the cases with fever, tonsillopharyngitis and cervical lymphadenopathy to make an early diagnosis and to design relevant treatment.
