Lidia Tretyakova looks at the tombstone of her father, Lazar Karsayev, at a cemetery in Yekaterinburg, Russia, Thursday, Oct. 18, 2001. A mysterious outbreak of anthrax killed at least 68 people, including Karsayev, 22 years ago in the Russian industrial center of Sverdlovsk, today known as Yekaterinburg. At the time, neither the victims nor their families suspected they had been hit by a biological weapon.


Laboratory workers at the Sverdlovsk regional epedemiological service put on the special suits they wear when working with anthrax and other dangerous bacteria in Yekaterinburg, Russia, Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2001

Diffuse consolidation, consistent with pneumonia of left lung

No mediastinal widening


Computed tomography of chest, Case 2

Bilateral pulmonary consolidation and pleural effusioins


Chest X-ray, Case 7 – Mediastinal widening, left pleural effusion
