Anthrax bacteria. Computer artwork of Bacillus anthracis bacteria, the cause of anthrax. B. anthracis is a Gram-positive, rod-shaped, spore- forming bacterium. Flagella (hair-like structures) are used for locomotion. It can infect the skin (cutaneous anthrax), causing raised itchy lesions, the lungs (pulmonary anthrax, which is fatal unless treated quickly, and the digestive system (gastrointestinal anthrax), causing vomiting of blood and severe diarrhoea. All forms can be fatal if left untreated. Treatment is with antibiotics.
