Clinic significance

A zoonotic disease caused by Francisella tularensis. Humans can become infected via contact with contaminated sick or dead animals, especially hares and rabbits (it is also known as rabbit fever). When transmission is transcutaneous, an inoculation lesion develops followed by extensive lymphadenopathy and a variable degree of fever. Ocular infection results in conjunctivitis and oral infection in pharyngitis. In humans, the infection never becomes septicemic and is invariably benign. Isolating the bacterium is difficult and diagnosis depends on clinical and epidemiological factors but serological analysis can be useful for confirmation (ideally, documented seroconversion or a high antibody titer).
