In Turkey, most of tularemia cases are in oropharyngeal form because the main routes of transmission are waterborne and contaminated food ingestion. On the other hand, ulceroglandular form is generally observed as a result of contact with infected animals and animal products. Arthropod-borne tularemia is very rare in Turkey. In this study, we present an arthropod-borne ulceroglandular tularemia case in Bursa province.
