These treatment recommendations were made during U.S. 2001 anthrax outbreak. In other situations, antimicrobial susceptibility testing should be used to guide therapy decisions. † Ciprofloxacin or doxycycline should be considered an essential part of first-line therapy for inhalational anthrax. ‡ Steroids may be considered and adjunct therapy for patients with severe edema (Doust et al. Corticosteroid in treatment of malignant edema of chest wall and neck [anthrax]. Dis Chest 1968;53:773-4) and for meningitis based on experience with bacterial meningitis of other etiologies. § Initial therapy my be altered based on clinical course of patient; one or two antimicrobial agents (e.g. ciprofloxacin or doxycycline) may be adequate as patient improves. ** If meningitis is suspected, doxycycline may be less than optimal because of poor central nervous system penetration. †† Because of concerns of constitutive and inducible beta-lactamases in Bacillus anthracis isolates, penicillin and ampicillin should not be used alone. Consultation with an infectious disease specialist is advised. ‡‡ If intravenous ciprofloxacin is not available, oral ciprofloxacin may be acceptable because it is rapidly and well absorbed from gastrointestinal tract with no substatial loss by first-pass metabolism. Maximum serum concentrations are attained 1 to 2 hours after oral doing but may no be achieved if vomiting or ileus is present. §§ American Academy of Pediatrics recommends treatment of young children with tetracyclines for serious infections (eg, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever). *** Although tetracyclines are not recommended for pregnant women, their use may be indicated for life-threatening illness. Adverse effects on developing teeth and bones are dose-related; therefore, doxycycline might be used for a short time (7 to 14 days) before 6 months of gestation. Adapted from CDC.
