Abstract

Two cases of human cutaneous anthrax were reported in September 2014 in south-western Bosnia and Herzegovina. The two men were involved in slaughtering a cow and handled its Bacillus anthracis-infected meat. Anthrax has been sporadically observed in livestock in Bosnia and Herzegovina, but no confirmed human cases had been reported in the country in the last two decades. Clinicians in the country should be aware that anthrax may occur in humans, arising from exposure to infected animals.
