Anthrax is a well known infectious disease affecting mainly animals and secondarily humans. Nowadays, human infection is very rare, although sporadic cases are reported in farmers and other workers who carry on anthrax-risk activities such as tanners, wool-carders, shearers. However, the disease is still endemic in several areas, especially in developing countries. Recently, bioterroristic attacks using anthrax spores were responsible for a renewed interest of the international medical community on this treacherous and extremely dangerous biologic weapon.
