Bubonic plague is the best known manifestation of the bacterial
disease plague, caused by the Gram-negative bacterium Yersinia
pestis (formerly known as Pasteurella pestis). It belongs to the
family Enterobacteriaceae. The term "bubonic plague" was often used
synonymously for plague, but it does in fact refer specifically to
an infection that enters through the skin and travels through the
lymphatics, as is often seen in flea-borne infections. Bubonic
plague kills about half of infected patients in 3-7 days without
treatment, and may be the Black Death that swept through Europe in
the 1340s, killing tens of millions.
