Caption: Clostridium bacterium. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a Clostridium tetani bacterium, the cause of tetanus (lockjaw). This gram- positive bacillus (rod-shaped) bacterium lives in soil, but is also found in the human intestine. If the bacterium enters the body through a wound, tetanus may result. The multiplying bacteria produce a nerve toxin which affects the activity of muscles. Stiffness of the jaw (lockjaw), back and facial muscles may occur with painful spasms. Magnification: x12,000 at 35mm size.
