    Bubonic plague is a infectious disease caused by the Yersinia pestis bacterium, and transmitted by the oriental rat flea to humans from infected rats. It is called in the buttocks, armpits, back, and elsewhere, for the characteristic trait of buboes (painfully enlarged lymph nodes).

    Bubonic plague is one of three types of plague caused by bacterium Yersinia pestis. One to seven days after exposure to the bacteria, flu-like symptoms develop. These symptoms include fever, headaches, and vomiting. Swollen and painful lymph nodes occur in the area closest to where the bacteria entered the skin.
