of the Tumour on a neck were his lymph nodes, and the analysis has shown that this person has been infected with Francisella tularensis bacterium. The patient has told doctors that in two days before symptoms were shown, his domestic cat has died of allegedly cat's leukemia.

Nevertheless, didn't confirm this diagnosis with laboratory tests therefore doctors suspect that the cat was ill a tulyaremiya too.

What is a tulyaremiya?

of Francisella tularensis actually very seldom meets at people. In 2016 experts in the field of health care have registered only 230 cases in the United States.
