Entitled, “Investigating an Anthrax Epizootic”, this image was captured by CDC's Jane Kelly, MD, NCHHSTP/DHAP/HICSB, in the HIV Incidence and Case Surveillance Branch. Dr. Kelly was an EIS Officer at the time this photo was created. Months before the anthrax mail terrorist events, CDC investigated a case of cutaneous anthrax in a ranch hand. The investigation revealed an anthrax epizootic among animals imported to Texas ranches for exotic animal sport hunting. In this photo, Dr. Kelly was performing a lymph node biopsy on a dead aoudad. The animal had died less than 24-hours earlier of a hemorrhagic diathesis, consistent with anthrax, and this biopsy confirmed the diagnosis. This photo earned Dr. Kelly the Third Place award in the 2011 CDC Connects Annual Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the category of People and Programs-Domestic.
