Vukovic, S; Anagnostopoulos, A; Zbinden, R; Schönenberger, L; Guillod, C; French, L E; Navarini, A; Roider, E (2019). Schmerzhafte Lymphadenopathie nach Insektenstich – ein Fallbericht. Der Hautarzt, 70(1):47-50.

Abstract

Tularemia is a bacterial zoonosis which is commonly transmitted through tick or insect bites or contact with meat of infected animals. We report the case of a 36-year-old man who developed fever, chills, headaches, and a painful, unilateral, inguinal lymphadenopathy with a red-livid skin discoloration after an insect bite on his abdomen. Ulceroglandular tularemia was diagnosed through polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and serology. Treatment with doxycycline for 21 days resulted in an excellent outcome.
