Clostridia are spore-forming, gram-positive, anaerobic microbiota. They are known to produce a toxin, some of which are potentially lethal. There are three types of clostridia that cause commonly recognized and often fatal diseases. Clostridium tetani( tetanus) , Clostridium botulinum i(botulism) and Clostridium perfringens (gas gangrene). Tetanus can be caused by contact between spores of C. tetani and an open wound, such as stepping on a rusty nail.
Clostridium differentiation is broken down into species:
- Clostridium sporgenes is often found in soil and can sometimes colonize the gastrointestinal tract of humans, but only in a small subset of the population.
- Clostridium histolyticum can occur in soil and is probably also a resident of the intestinal tract in humans and animals.
- Clostridium sordellii is a rare Clostridium form that can cause pneumonia and arthritis, among other things.
- Clostridium septicum is found in the soil and in the intestinal tract of human animals. It is increasingly isolated from human blood, especially in patients with reduced immunity.
- Clostridium tetani is widely distributed in the soil, but also in the intestinal tract of humans and animals. The bacterium can release the exotoxin tetanospasmin after autolysis, which can lead to tetanus in humans.
- Clostridium bifermentans is very rare in humans.
- Clostridium baratii can in very rare cases cause botulism in newborns, where they lose muscle tone and develop feeding difficulties due to breathing difficulties, which can be fatal.
