Malignant pustule (Med.), a very contagious disease
produced by infection of subcutaneous tissues with the
bacterium Bacillus anthracis. It is transmitted to man
from animals and is characterized by the formation, at the
point of reception of the infection, of a vesicle or
pustule which first enlarges and then breaks down into an
unhealthy ulcer. It is marked by profound exhaustion and
often fatal. The disease in animals is called charbon;
in man it is called cutaneous anthrax, and formerly was
sometimes called simply anthrax.
