What is Tetanus?
Tetanus is an infection caused by the bacterium Clostridium tetani, which produces toxins that attack the nervous system. The incubation period is 3-21 days. The patient usually presents with painful muscular contractions, primarily over the jaws and neck; the trunk is sometimes affected. In severe cases, infected persons may not be able to swallow or open his/her mouth. When tetanus affects muscles that help to breathe, the patient can die very quickly.
How does it spread?
The bacteria are found in soil and animal faeces. They get into the body through a break in the skin, such as a cut, puncture or sore. Infection can also occur after a burn or animal bite. Tetanus does not spread from one person to another.
