Abstract

Tetanus is uncommon in developed countries and it occurs in older adults. The majority of tetanus cases occur in third world countries and 50% of these cases occur in neonates. Tetanus is a rarely occurring disease in Iran. We report a 41-year-old man admitted to Imam Khomeini Hospital with spasms in face and lumbar muscles. Finally, inspite of intubation and drug therapy the patient was expired because of autonomic system disorder, and cardiac arrest.

Keywords: Tetanus, Rare.
