In brief: Tetnaus prone wound

Tetanus immunoglobulin would be used in a "tetanus-prone wound"(wounds caused by puncture, crush injury, burns or frostbite)in an individual who hat not received an initial series of three tetanus immunizations as a child, or it is unclear if the person ever received a series of immunizations.
The immunoglobulin would be in in addition to tetanus toxoid.
