          Abstract

          A 46-year-old female patient, who presented with a black, crusty lesion on the upper eyelid, was diagnosed with cutaneous anthrax after the detection of Bacillus anthracis in the skin culture. It was determined that the symptoms started after she cooked the meat she bought from a butcher. Anthrax is a disease that should be kept in mind in cutaneous infections even in isolated lesions, especially in endemic areas.
