Abstract:

The men were infected during slaughter of anthrax-afflicted cattle. The carbuncles healed without specific treatment. In both cases anthrax bacillae were no longer identifiable, but the precipitation method produced a clear positive finding with the carbuncle scab of one of the men. This indicates the use of the Ascoli precipitation to clarify ambiguous cases of anthrax.
