How to use "Tetanuses" in context?
Tetanus is a serious and potentially deadly disease caused by the bacterium Clostridium tetani. Treatment typically involves a series of injections of a vaccine or synthetic tetanus toxoid (a tetanus antitoxin). Tetanus deaths are relatively rare in the United States, but it is one of the leading causes of infant mortality.
