Tetanus is an extremely life threatening infectious disease caused by bacteria, clostridium tetani manifesting with severe muscle spasm and rigidity. It can be extremely fatal if not treated properly.
The organism enters the body through open wound and produces a powerful neurotoxin which moves in the blood circulation and carried to various organs and nerve endings. The toxin has special affinity for the nervous tissue; it reaches the central nervous system along the axons of motor nerve trunk and gets fixed to the motor cells of anterior horn cells.
