PMID:  1259256     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A 45-year-old woman developed tetanus in a necrotic 5 Kg leiomyoma of the uterus; she was treated successfully by a combined surgical and anesthesiology team. A hysterectomy was performed despite the considerable controversy in the older publications. This literature was reviewed, and it was noted that there have been only two previously published cases of uterine tetanus other than in a post-abortal situation. The practical aspects of the management of severe tetanus are tabulated.
