Summaries for Wound Botulism

Disease Ontology : 12 A botulism that involves intoxication caused by botulinum neurotoxins (BoNTA, B, E and F), has material basis in Clostridium botulinum A, has material basis in Clostridium botulinum B, has material basis in Clostridium botulinum E and has material basis in Clostridium botulinum F, which are transmitted by contact of spores with the open wounds, which then reproduce in an anaerobic environment to produce toxins.

MalaCards based summary : Wound Botulism, also known as cutaneous toxin-mediated botulism, is related to foodborne botulism and respiratory failure. An important gene associated with Wound Botulism is LY96 (Lymphocyte Antigen 96). Affiliated tissues include skin, eye and testes, and related phenotypes are ptosis and diplopia
