Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Tetanus is a neuromuscular disease in which Clostridium tetani exotoxin (tetanospasmin) produces muscle spasms incapacitating its host. To our knowledge, Clostridium tetani bacteremia has never been reported in the literature. The ideal management of this entity remains unresolved given that there is no literature to guide the therapy.
