Plague is a disease initiated by the bacterium Yersinia pestis. The pathogens are discovered mostly in rats and in the fleas that feed on them. Persons and other animals can get plague from rat or flea bites. In the past, plague destroyed whole civilizations. Today plague is uncommon, due to better healthcare facilities and antibiotics. Bubonic plague determinants the tonsils, adenoids, spleen, and thymus to become inflamed. Symptoms include fever, aches, chills, and tender lymph glands. Bubonic plague is a zoonotic infection, circulating mostly in fleas on small rodents and is one of three types of bacterial diseases caused by Yersinia pestis (formerly renowned as Pasteurella pestis), which pertains to the family Enterobacteriaceae. Without remedy, the bubonic plague murders about two thirds of contaminated humans within 4 days. The most infamous symptom of bubonic plague is an infection of the lymph glands (lymphadenitis), which become distended and painful and are renowned as buboes. After being transmitted by biting the contaminated flea, bacteria become localized in an increased lymph node where they start to colonize and reproduce. Buboes affiliated with the bubonic plague are routinely found in the armpits, top femoral, and groin and neck district. Acral gangrene (i.e. of the appendages, toes, lips and nose), is another common symptom. In septicemia plague, pathogens multiply in the blood. Its determinants are fever, chills, shock, and bleeding under the skin or other body parts. Pneumonic plague is the most serious pattern. Pathogens go in the lungs and cause pneumonia. Persons with this disease can spread this form to other ones. This type could be a bioterror agency. Lab tests can identify plague. It is treated with the powerful antibiotic, as There is no vaccine
