Tularemia is a rare zoonotic infection caused by the bacterium Francisella tularensis. It occurs in North America, Europe, and Asia. The most common clinical presentation is ulceroglandular tularemia with chills, fever, head and muscle pain, and prostration. Some people may develop pneumonia or septicemia. Rabbits serve as an important reservoir host for F. tularensis.
