983 Possible Causes for Anthrax

  • Bacterial Meningitis

    Mondini dysplasia is rare, but has an important association with recurrent bacterial meningitis. We herein describe the case of a 3-year-old girl with unilateral sensorineural hearing loss who presented with three independent episodes of bacterial meningitis within 8 months. Temporal bone computed tomography indicated[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Ricin Poisoning by Inhalation

    How are anthrax and ricin similar or different?[city.milwaukee.gov] It ranks behind anthrax, botulism, plague, smallpox, tularemia and viral hemorrhagic fevers. It can be aerosolized, released into the air and inhaled.[foxnews.com] Anthrax (inhaled) Cutaneous exposure can kill, but the most deadly, panic-inspiring form of anthrax is inhaled.[wired.com]

  • Antiphospholipid Syndrome

The clinical presentation involves thromboembolic events affecting vessels of all sizes, ultimately predisposing the patient to malignant hypertension and life-threatening vascular[…][symptoma.com]

  • Common Cold

    The link between chills and infection dates from Louis Pasteur, who found in 1878 that chickens are naturally immune to anthrax.[nytimes.com] The chicken developed anthrax and died. Pasteur repeated the experiment with a chicken he fished out of the water after a few hours and warmed in a blanket.[nytimes.com] He guessed that their high body temperatures might be responsible (normal chicken temperature varies from 104 to 107) and decided to expose a chicken to anthrax and then chill[nytimes.com]

  • Acute Bronchitis

    Cutaneous (skin) anthrax can result from skin contact. Inhalational anthrax causes severe illness with a mortality rate exceeding 50 percent.[web.archive.org] Anthrax External is a potentially deadly disease caused by Bacillus anthracis, a bacterium that forms spores. Inhalational anthrax can result from spore inhalation.[cdc.gov] Anthrax The use of naturally occurring infectious agents to inflict deliberate harm has become a major concern following the anthrax attacks of 2001.[web.archive.org]

  • Ricin Poisoning

    Differential diagnosis Exposure to other agents such as anthrax, pneumonic plague and phosgene. Food poisoning.[patient.info] Though it is deadly in large quantities, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ( CDC ) ranks ricin as a Class B bioterrorism agent, behind more deadly toxins like anthrax[medicaldaily.com] Other bioterrorism agents such as anthrax are of greater concern to security experts.[livescience.com]

  • Zoonosis

    Anthrax is a non-contagious disease, known since ancient times.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] When a person breathes in anthrax spores, they can develop inhalation anthrax.[cdc.gov] Close contact with cattle can lead to cutaneous anthrax infection, whereas inhalation anthrax infection is more common for workers in slaughterhouses, tanneries and wool mills[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Sporotrichosis

    Sporotrichosis is a subcutaneous mycosis that is caused by Sporothrix schenckii. Whereas the most common clinical presentation is the lymphocutaneous form, the fixed cutaneous form is not uncommon. Important clues from the clinical history, such as travel and occupation, can help to raise the suspicion of this[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
