Part Descriptions

LP16672-5   Bacillus anthracis
Bacillus anthracis is a Gram-positive, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped bacterium of the genus Bacillus. A spore -forming bacterium, B. anthracis is a natural soil-dwelling organism, as well as the causative agent of anthrax.

Three forms of anthrax disease are recognized based on their form of inoculation.
- Cutaneous, the most common form (95%), causes a localized, inflammatory, black, necrotic lesion (eschar).
- Pulmonary, the highly fatal form, is characterized by sudden, massive chest edema followed by cardiovascular shock.
- Gastrointestinal, a rare but also fatal (causes death to 25%) type, results from ingestion of spores. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License.
