#UndertheLens: This is a microscopic view of Clostridium tetani magnified 956X. These bacteria produce tetanospasmin, the neurotoxin responsible for tetanus. On the basis of weight, it’s one of the most potent toxins known! Tetanus is a serious disease that causes breathing problems, muscle spasms, and paralysis, and can be deadly. Muscle spasms can be so strong they can break a child’s spine or other bones. The best way for parents to protect their child against tetanus is by following the recommended schedule for tetanus vaccination. Talk to your child’s doctor to ensure they’re up to date.
