Tularemia 2 *
This Vermont muskrat trapper contracted tularemia, which manifested as cutaneous lesions on the dorsum of his right hand. Tularemia is a potentially serious illness that occurs naturally in the United States. It is caused by the bacterium Francisella tularensis found in animals, especially rodents, rabbits, hares, and muskrats, and can be used as a bioterorrism agent.
