The oropharyngeal type of tularemia is discussed and four cases are presented. The clinical manifestations are those of an acute bacterial tonsillitis with cervical lymphadenitis. The diagnosis may be made by an intradermal skin test, agglutination tests, or culture of the organism from infected tissue or fluid. The disease responds dramatically to streptomycin.
