Infection of man S. I. possibly by contact, aerogenic, alimentary and transmissible routes.

Pathogenesis. Entrance gate - damaged skin, mucous membranes of the respiratory tract and gastrointestinal tract. Exotoxin causes coagulation of proteins, tissue swelling, anthrax carbuncle develops - an inflammation of the nose, a necrosis of the skin in the center of the focus with the formation of a brownish-black crust. Macrophages are recorded in the reg / nodes. Upon inhalation of anthrax spores, macrophages are introduced into the lymph. pathways to the posterior mediastinal l / nodes. Total necrosis, which contributes to hematogenous generalization of infection, multiple hemorrhages in various organs.

The incubation period. 2-3 days (from several hours to 14 days).

1. Cutaneous form. (99%). There is carbuncle, edematous (edema without carbuncle), bullous (hemorrhagic blisters), erysipeloid (transparent bubbles). In the entrance gates - a spot 1-3 mm, reddish-blue, painless - papule is copper-red, itching, burning - 12-24 hours vesicle with serous, then bloody zh-tju - ulcer with a dark bottom, painless !, ser-gemor Separated, on the raised edges - daughter vesicles, then merge together.
After 1-2 weeks - a black scab with a wax around it. Regional lymphadenitis. Carbuncle painless! t? lasts 5-6 days.

2. The septic form. Severe intoxication. Ser-hemorrhoid pleurisy, hemorrhagia of the lung, abdominal pain, GI bleeding, peritonitis, meningoencephalitis, cerebral edema.

Diagnostics. Immunofluorescence, in / to the sample with anthraxin. Sowing the contents of vesicles, carbuncles, sputum, vomit, feces, blood.

Treatment. Penicillin 6-24 million units / day before the disappearance of c-MOU (7-8 days). When septic form - cephalosporins, levomitsetin, gentamicin. Immunoglobulin.

    Anthrax is a well-known disease of animals that is transmitted to humans and proceeds as an acute infectious disease characterized by severe intoxication, damage to the skin and lymphatic system. Its name is derived from the Greek word for "coal", by analogy with the black color of the scab formed at the dermal form. Etiology. Pathogen of the disease
