Since the terrorist attack on the United States in September 2001 attention has been focused on the threat of biological warfare. The disruptive effects of deliberate release of anthrax in civilian settings have been well documented, and several other pathogens could also be used as biological weapons. We have described the key features of such pathogens, how they might be used in biological warfare, and the clinical syndromes they cause. We also discuss the medical and logistic response to their possible use.
