Abstract
Tularemia (caused by the facultative intracellular Gram-negative bacillus Francisella tularensis) is an endemic zoonotic disease in Europe, which exhibits different clinical patterns. Following the glandular form, pneumonia is the second most frequent manifestation in Switzerland. Pulmonary tularemia often has a subacute course and fails to respond to beta-lactam antibiotics. It can also mimic tuberculosis, because of the presence of systemic symptoms, such as fever, sweats and weight loss. History of animal exposure is not always reported. Clinicians should be aware of pulmonary tularemia. They should be able to diagnose it with appropriate tools (PCR, serology) and initiate appropriate therapy (fluoroquinolones, tetracyclines or aminoglycosides).
