Glanders is a contagious and life-threatening disease of horses, donkeys and mules caused by Burkholderia mallei which can be transmitted to humans. Susceptibility to glanders has been demonstrated in wild felines, camels, bears, wolves and dogs.

This brochure on glanders shows valuable images of clinical signs, post mortem lesions as well as histology and microbiological pictures. These images will serve as a useful tool to veterinarians and other interested people in understanding and diagnosing this zoonosis. It may also help to eradicate the disease from our globe.
