Tularemia in otolaryngologic practice. An analysis of 127 cases.

Abstract

Ulceroglandular, glandular, and oropharyngeal forms of tularemia may occur in otolaryngologic patients, frequently causing diagnostic difficulties. A retrospective analysis of 127 patients with serologically proved tularemia in the head and neck region is presented with special reference to diagnostic difficulties. Short case reports of six patients are included. Difficulties seemed to appear especially in the diagnosis of glandular tularemia. Oropharyngeal tularemia is easily confused with infectious mononucleosis. A high degree of suspicion of tularemia is recommended in endemic areas.
