PHIL Image 722

ID#:722
Description:Under a relatively-low magnification of 96X, this hematoxylin-eosin (H&E)-stained photomicrograph of a small intestinal tissue sample revealed the presence of histopathologic changes indicative of marked mucosal and submucosal hemorrhage, with accompanying arteriolar degeneration in a case of fatal human anthrax.

Anthrax is a serious infectious disease caused by gram-positive, rod-shaped bacteria known as Bacillus anthracis. Anthrax can be found naturally in soil and commonly affects domestic and wild animals around the world. Although it is rare, people can get sick with anthrax if they come in contact with infected animals or contaminated animal products.

Contact with anthrax can cause severe illness in both humans and animals. Anthrax is not contagious, which means you can’t catch it like the cold or flu.
