Anthrax is a highly fatal infectious disease caused by Bacillus anthracisa Gram- positive, aerobic, encapsulated bacillus which produces spores that in favorable conditions can persist in the environment for decades before infecting the host.

In Outbreak 4 cattle were vaccinated against tick fever days before; anthrax was diagnosed in cattle with acute signs; they did not respond to tetracycline treatment.

In Outbreaks 7, 8 and 10 cattle were not vaccinated against anthrax.

Most outbreaks affected non-vaccinated animals of different ages suggesting that routine vaccination is very important in prevention of the disease. The source of infection was not established; but the reduced rainfall, associated with low, flat, flooded lands used for agriculture followed by animal grazing after harvest was probably related to the disease occurrence.

In Outbreaks 1 and 10 the first cattle that died had clinical signs of tick fever and specimens sent to the laboratory were positive for Babesia bovis. All diagnoses were made on specimens sent by veterinarians or collected by the author s in visits to the affected farms. In Outbreaks 1 and 5 cattle were vaccinated annually against anthrax, but Outbreak 1 started during annual vaccination.

The lack of routine vaccination could be the reason for the increase in the number of outbreaks in this period. Accepted for publication on July 15, Such a source could result in wide dissemination of the agent in the environment.

In the polychromic methylene blue stained slides a metachromatic typical capsule was observed Fig. Farmers informed that two cattle in Outbreak 4 and one in Outbreak 8 survived after treatment with antibiotics. The use of previously plowed areas for animal grazing after harvest with the appearance of spores, which were previ-ously underground, has been suggested as an explanation of the occurrence gacunos the disease Parkinson et al.

On this farm, the owner also mentioned that the disease occurred more than 30 years ago, and after many years of vaccination this practice was abandoned. Services on Demand Journal. Guinea pigs or mice inoculated with material from the specimens sent by the practitioners or with the bacteria cultured on blood agar died hours after inoculation, presenting edema and splenomegaly at necropsy.

Annual vaccination is an efficient way to prevent the disease. Epidemiological data of those outbreaks are presented in Table 1. It is suggested that in flooded areas the spores of Bacillus anthracis float and disperse, and later, under dry conditions, they concentrate causing outbreaks Turner et al.
