Laboratory personnel who prepare anthrax spore vaccines as well as individuals who use such products are exposed to infection if the vaccine is placed in contact with a wound or bruise. The resulting infection is quite benign with formation of only a small necrotic focus at the site of inoculation, very limited edema, no general reaction - recovery in two weeks.
