Tularemia: description of a new case on the Amiata mountain
Castro R., Campanella G., Gullino E., Bianconi E., Biagi P.
One sporadic case of tularemia induced by direct contact with an infected hare is described. Human epidemiological data of the last ten years in Tuscany, emphasize that this infection, although at low incidence, shows the presence and persistence of Francisella tularensis in the animals and the ensuing transmission to humans so that it continues to be responsible for significant morbididy in ''at risk'' territories. Difficulties in the differential diagnosis, above all for glandular and pharyngeal forms, are reviewed.
