Abstract

Background: Bacillus anthracis infects both humans and animals which leads to anthrax disease. The disease is still a global issue as it occurs naturally and has a potential use for bioterrorism/bio-weapons agents. This study aimed to investigate the clinical and epidemiologic features of human anthrax that has been seen in Kyrgyzstan.
