Abstract:

In Central Asia camels are apt to become infected with anthrax. This fact must be borne in mind by veterinarians as well as medical workers. An infected camel may become a source of an epidemic of anthrax among humans. With the cutaneous form of anthrax, in certain instances, multiple cutaneous lesions may occur due to various ways of infection. Author
