Abstract

In Turkey, most of tularemia cases are in oropharyngeal form because the main routes of transmission are waterborne and contaminated food ingestion. On the other hand, ulceroglandular form is generally observed as a result of contact with infected animals and animal products. Arthropod-borne tularemia is very rare in Turkey. In this study, we present an arthropod-borne ulceroglandular tularemia case in Bursa province.
