Abstract

This study describes the clinical characteristics of tularemia in Spain's first epidemic outbreak and the therapeutic response and compares the efficacy of 3 antibiotics (streptomycin, ciprofloxacin, and doxycycline). For 142 cases of tularemia, the therapeutic failure rate was 22.5%; ciprofloxacin was the antibiotic with the lowest percentage of therapeutic failures and with the fewest side effects.
