Bubonic plague which is characterized by painful lymphadenopathy or buboes, fever, headache, immobility, pain and defeat of the abdominal cavity after the 2-7-day incubation period. Insect bite usually goes unnoticed, but a small crust may indicate the place of the introduction of the parasite. Untreated bubonic plague is usually leading to sepsis and decrease blood pressure being followed by death in 2-10 days. Pneumonia develops in 10-20% of the cases and it is characterized multilobular defeat and release Y. pestis from sputum. The disease proceeds rapidly if left untreated and death occurs after 2-6 days.
