Abstract

We present a case of severe war wounds infected by Bacillus thuringiensis serotype H34 and describe the experimental protocol used to demonstrate its ability to infect mice after cutaneous inoculation. This case is interesting because B. thuringiensis is considered to be a contaminant in laboratories and receives inadequate attention.
