Abstract

Francisella tularensis may be isolated with the BACTEC 460 blood culture system even though bottles may not meet the established criteria for recognizing positive blood cultures. We describe three proven bacteremic cases in which growth indices were not positive, gram stain of broth showed no microorganisms but F. tularensis grew on chocolate agar culture.
