Example text

Therefore, penicillin or amoxicillin alone are not recommended for treatment of systemic anthrax infection (11). The recommendations for gastrointestinal anthrax, including oropharyngeal anthrax, are the same as those for inhalational anthrax. Neither doxycycline nor a fluoroquinolone may reach therapeutic levels in the cerebrospinal fluid. Therefore, ciprofloxacin augmented with chloramphenicol, rifampin, or penicillin is the treatment of choice for suspected or confirmed anthrax meningitis (4).

Physicians and other health care providers should not administer the prophylaxis option that includes anthrax vaccine to women who are pregnant or who intend to become pregnant (16). Some exposed people may have already received a partial or complete anthrax vaccination regimen before exposure. Based on the only human clinical trial of the vaccine, in which anthrax cases occurred in those who had received less than four doses, the ACIP recommends that exposed people who have been partially or fully vaccinated receive at least 30 days of antibiotic prophylaxis while completing the vaccination regimen.

Most cases of nonanthrax ILI are associated with nasal congestion and rhinorrhea. In comparison, only one of the ten patients in the October 2001 outbreak complained of rhinorrhea. A history of influenza vaccination does not help differentiate inhalational anthrax from other causes of ILI. The vaccine does not prevent ILI caused by infectious agents other than influenza, and many persons vaccinated against influenza will still get ILI. Therefore, a history of receipt of vaccine does not increase the probability of inhalational anthrax as a cause of ILI, especially among persons who have no probable exposure to anthrax.
