Abstract [en]

We report ulceroglandular tularemia affecting an 8-year-old boy and the first recovery of Francisella tularensis in Denmark. A novel real-time PCR assay was used to identify the strain as F. tularensis subsp. holarctica (type B). Multiple-locus variable-number tandem repeat analysis demonstrated a close genetic relationship to strains from Norway.
