It is hoped that none of us will ever have to treat victims of a BW attack. Recognition of such an attack will require considering its possibility when the epidemiology of an illness outbreak is unusual. The effects of many of the agents can be at least partially ameliorated with prompt treatment or postexposure prophylaxis. Surgeons need to be active participants in hospital, local, and regional disaster planning.
