Abstract Until recently, inhalational anthrax was a medical curiosity in both the Western medical literature and clinical practice. The post-September 11, 2001 outbreak of this disease in the eastern United States that spread through the mail, however, instantly changed the appreciation of this disease and the appreciation of biological terrorism/warfare in general. The microbiology, epidemiology, clinical, and therapeutic/preventative aspects of this entity, classically known as "wool sorter's disease" are highlighted in this review.
