Objective. Determination of the epidemiological features of anthrax in the Altai Territory at the present stage.
Materials and methods. The study was based on a retrospective epidemiological analysis of the dynamics and structure of the population incidence of anthrax in the Altai Territory from 1953 to 2015, and cases of anthrax epizootic from 1927 to 2015. Historical data, medical records of hospital patients with anthrax, information materials and data of the Administration of the Federal Service on Surveillance in the Sphere of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare in the Altai Territory, and data of the Veterinary Administrative Board in the Altai Territory were used.
Results. 1262 anthrax permanently-unfavorable points were registered in the Altai Territory. Epizootic and epidemiological features of the disease in the Altai region in the period from 1953 to 2015 are described. The clinical and epidemiological characteristics of the anthrax incidence in population of the Altai Territory in 2012 are presented.
Conclusion. Altai Territory is the area with pronounced epizootic and epidemiological anthrax ill-being with potential high risk of the disease incidence in humans and farm animals (a large number of permanently-unfavorable points and their high density).
