How is tetanus diagnosed?
Not usually diagnose
Tetanus is very rare, given the almost universal administration of vaccine during childhood and after a penetrating wound if it's been more than 10 years since the last booster. The common name is lockjaw, which gives you an idea of what happens in this infection.
The severe and continuous muscle spasms are produced by a toxin released by the clostridium tetani bacteria in susceptible wounds.
