  • Anthrax is a serious infectious disease caused by gram-positive, rod-shaped bacteria known as Bacillus anthracis.
  • Although it is rare, people can get sick with anthrax if they come in contact with infected animals or contaminated animal products.
  • It can occur in four forms: skin, lungs, intestinal, and injection.
  • The symptoms of anthrax depend on the type of infection and can take anywhere from 1 day to more than 2 months to appear.  All types of anthrax have the potential, if untreated, to spread throughout the body and cause severe illness and even death.
