Anthrax Caught from Imported Rug

An Arizona man caught anthrax from a wool rug imported from Turkey, according to the Department of Health Services. This is cutaneous anthrax, the kind that causes skin lesions, and it?s easily cured with antibiotics. It's the powdered kind that's inhaled that has killed several people in terrorist attacks.

"He may have been exposed through a natural source, that being a rug from Turkey," says health department spokesman Michael Murphy. "It's possibly anthrax, but if it is, it would be natural exposure from an animal source from a country where anthrax is known."
