22,26,27) Exposure to aerosolized F tularensis principally manifests as typhoidal or pneumonic disease and produces greater mortality (30-60%) if untreated.
Because typhoidal Salmonella antibodies are known to cross-react with other antigens including those from non-typhoidal Salmonella and malaria antigens, the use of Widal test as diagnostic tool in patients with malaria may lead to misleading results as demonstrated by some studies from Nigeria.
Its timing coincided with a population peak of the common vole (Microtus arvalis), and the most frequent clinical forms of the disease were typhoidal and pneumonic (65% of the cases), which is consistent with infection being acquired through inhalation of F.
In previous studies of typhoidal Salmonella isolates, MICs for azithromycin ranged from 4 [micro]g/mL to 64 [micro]g/mL (8-13).
The primary clinical forms are glandular and ulceroglandular (skin inoculation), oculoglandular (conjunctival inoculation), oropharyngeal (oral contamination), pneumonic (inhalation of an infected aerosol), and typhoidal (various modes of infection) (2,7).
Left untreated, about one in 10 patients with the typhoidal infection will die.
