Botulism is botulinus toxin toxocity accumulated in the provision and is characterized by central nervous system destruction. Activator – clostridium of botulism is strict anaerobe forming sporules and a very strong toxin – exotoxin.
Enter the digestive tract botulinus toxin doesn’t collapse enzymes, it is soaked up through stomach mucous membranes and intestines and it is hematogenously carried on all organism. At botulism of babies the toxin production occurs in intestines, and at wound botulism – in necrotic fabrics. Botulinus toxin selectively affects cholinergic areas of the nervous system.
