Density-Dependent Prevalence of Francisella tularensis in Fluctuating Vole Populations, Northwestern Spain.
Emerg Infect Dis . 2017 Aug;23(8):1377-1379.
Tularemia in humans in northwestern Spain is associated with increases in vole populations. Prevalence of infection with Francisella tularensis in common voles increased to 33% during a vole population fluctuation. This finding confirms that voles are spillover agents for zoonotic outbreaks. Ecologic interactions associated with tularemia prevention should be considered.
