Departments of Pediatric Oncology, 1Dr. Sami Ulus Children's Hospital, Ankara, and 2Zonguldak Karaelmas University Faculty of Medicine, Zonguldak, Turkey Tularemia is a zoonotic disease caused by Francisella tularensis. The clinical forms mostly depend on the port of entry into humans. Ingestion typically results in the oropharyngeal form and is associated with symptoms such as fever, pharyngitis, cervical lymphadenitis, and suppuration. In this report, we describe a child treated for Hodgkin's disease presenting six years later with a left cervical lymphadenopathy mimicking a relapse. Keywords : Hodgkin lymphoma, lymphadenopathy, oropharyngeal, tularemia.
