Malignant pustule (Med.), a very contagious disease
produced by infection of subcutaneous tissues with the
bacterium Bacillus anthracis. It is transmitted to man

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.
