Rare infectious diseases
NIH Rare Diseases:46 Tularemia is an infection common in wild rodents caused by the bacterium francisella tularensis. it is transmitted to humans by contact with infected animal tissues or by ticks, biting flies, and mosquitoes. the condition is most common in north america and parts of europe and asia. it is very rare in the united states. the illness, which is characterized by fever, chills, headache, joint pain and muscle weakness, may continue for several weeks after symptoms begin. streptomycin and tetracycline are commonly used to treat the infection. last updated: 5/10/2010
MalaCards based summary: Tularemia, also known as francisella tularensis infection, is related to pneumonic tularemia and ulceroglandular tularemia. An important gene associated with Tularemia is STAB2 (Stabilin 2), and among its related pathways is Legionellosis. Affiliated tissues include lymph node, testes and skin, and related mouse phenotype muscle.
Disease Ontology:11 A primary bacterial infectious disease that has material basis in francisella tularensis, which is transmitted by dog tick bite (dermacentor variabilis), transmitted by deer flies (chrysops sp) or transmitted by contact with infected animal tissues.
CDC:2 Tularemia is a disease of animals and humans caused by the bacterium Francisella tularensis. Rabbits, hares, and rodents are especially susceptible and often die in large numbers during outbreaks. Humans can become infected through several routes, including:
