Abstract

Anthrax, plague, Q fever, and tularemia are all uncommon bacterial infections whose pulmonary manifestations can be readily confused with each other as well as other more common diseases, such as influenza and atypical pneumonia. Each of these agents should be included in the differential diagnosis of a severe or rapidly progressive pneumonic illness. The rapid identification and treatment of potentially affected individuals and the institution of appropriate infection control measures is of primary importance in the public health response to bioterrorism [47].
