Abstract: Tetanus is an illness that is still prevalent although the incidence has markedly decreased largely due to immunisation programmes. The latest four cases managed at St. Luke's hospital over 2001-2002 are presented. All of these patients survived. We give an overview of the illness and discuss the cases and management. The potential benefit of using dual antibiotic therapy is questioned.
