Anthrax is a zoonotic infection caused by Bacillus anthracis. Although the incidence of the disease is decreasing in our country, it is still endemic in certain regions of the country. The cutaneous form of disease is the most common clinical form, which is usually benign and rarely causes bacteriemia and sepsis. In this case report, a cutaneous anthrax case with positive blood and wound samples that complicated with sepsis is presented. A 39-years-old male patient living in Kars (Eastern Turkey) admitted with systemic fever, chills and a local hyperemic wound on the right arm. In his medical history the patient stated an insect (fly) bite three days ago and consequent development of a lesion on his right arm. He also stated that he had slaughtered a lamb 10 days ago by himself. On admission the patient was detected to have a 3-4 cm centrally necrotic and peripherally edematous wound confined to right forehand (Figure 1).
