Ultrasound and ultrasound shear-wave elastography evaluation of ulceroglandular type of tularemia.

INTRODUCTION: Ultrasound (US) has an important place in imaging ulceroglandular type patients with tularemia. This study is a case series addressing the imaging findings of US and US shear-wave elastography in ulceroglandular type tularemia.

DESCRIPTION: Three patients, two women, and one man, were included in our case series. The patients were admitted to our hospital with neck swelling, pain, and a palpable mass. After the diagnosis of tularemia was made as a result of the examinations performed on the patients, they were evaluated again with US and US shear-wave elastography.

DISCUSSION: Since there are many diagnoses including ulceroglandular tularemia in the differential diagnosis of swelling, pain, and palpable mass in the neck, the patient must undergo a thorough evaluation process. US shear-wave elastography can provide significant benefits in identification and treatment follow-up in order to understand the ulceroglandular mass formation observed in the neck in tularemia and the stiffness and morphology of the tissues in the lymph nodes where involvement is observed and to distinguish them from the surrounding tissue.
