How can we diagnose Tetanus ?

The physician makes diagnosis by assesing the symptoms of the patient.

Painless spasm of the muscles of the jaw “Trismus”, difficulty in opening the mouth “lock Jaw”, contraction of the muscles on the forehead and mouth “risus sardonicus”, the board like rigidity of the abdominal wall are characteristic symptoms what the doctor looks for in a patient.
