Tetanus

Tetanus is a severe disease caused by a neurotoxin which is produced by Clostridium tetani bacteria. Transmission occurs when spores are introduced into the body, most often through wounds. Tetanus is not spread from person to person.

The toxin produced by the bacteria cause a number of different symptoms including spasm of facial muscles e.g. “lock jaw”.

People of all ages can acquire tetanus infection, but it is particularly common and serious in newborn babies. Early diagnosis and treatment for tetanus can be life-saving.1
