Up to 1924, only 15 cases of human tularemia had been described. Since that time more than 800 cases have been reported in the literature, and one cannot escape the conviction that the disease is widespread at present. Cases have been reported from every state in the Union, except the New England states, Delaware and Washington, as well as from Japan and Russia.
Under these conditions, cases varying from the typical are likely to occur from time to time. An unusual case of well proved human tularemia forms the basis for this report.
For a complete bibliography and an exposition on the various phases of tularemia, reference should be made to the excellent book by Simpson,1 published in 1929.
