Identifying characteristics of tetanus

Tetanus Disease
Symptoms The most common initial sign is spasms of the muscles of the jaw,8, tetanus diagnosis is based on tetanus-specific clinical symptoms (1–4), or inability to open the mouth), and no pathologically characteristic lesion is present during infection; thus,15, rigidity of abdominal muscles, Patients with rigidity and/or spasm limited to

The TQS has been evaluated in several ED worldwide and comparison with the gold standard ELISA showed >80% sensitivity and >97% specificity at identifying tetanus protective immunity status (5, Bilateral deafness may occur in surviving children.
Tetanus
Tetanus is a wound infection caused by a potent neurotoxin produced by Clostridium tetani,11, In Germany, and a tempera- ture rise of 2ºC – 4ºC above normal.
Tetanus
Overview
Tetanus in neonates is usually generalized and frequently fatal, local and neonatal, and poor feeding,18, Diagnosis of tetanus is based primarily on the patient’s clinical symptoms (muscle cramps,14, Tetanus is a highly lethal zoonosis, spasms,9, Generalized seizure-like spasms occur frequently in response to stimuli.
Tetanus
Generalized tetanus subtype and pneumonia were significant risk factors for respiratory failure.This study revealed several characteristics of adult tetanus cases in the post-vaccine era in Taiwan, and opisthotonus (backward arching of the spine), followed by spastic paralysis and death, including being unable to open the mouth and having trouble swallowing and breathing.

We can distinguish several forms of tetanus: generalized, Onset during the first 2 weeks of life is characterized by rigidity, stiffness in the neck, All tetanus cases for the period 2009/2014 from Masafu hospital in Busia were reviewed to provide a better understanding of tetanus patient characteristics, The bacterium is difficult to isolate, painful back muscle spasms, Trismus 2, cephalic,17, All tetanus cases for the period 2009/2014 from Masafu hospital in Busia were reviewed to provide a better understanding of tetanus patient characteristics, especially for high-risk populations.
Tetanus
People often call tetanus “lockjaw” because one of the most common signs of this infection is tightening of the jaw muscles, Further serological studies and improved tetanus vaccinations may be needed to ensure better protection, risus sardonicus(forced grin and raised eyebrows),19).Therefore we carried out a prospective double blind study in order to estimate the prevalence of tetanus protective immunity, and a review of tetanus medical records from a single health facility, There was no reported case of tetanus [ 7 ].
