In recent years, there has been an increase in the reporting of tularemia cases due to factors such as rising awareness of tularemia, which is endemic in our country, or seasonal changes. Different clinical presentations of the disease may occur. One of these manifestations is erythema nodosum. In this case report, we aimed to raise awareness of this rare disease by presenting a 34-year-old female with oropharyngeal tularemia accompanied by erythema nodosum.
