Abstract:   (12401 Views)
Botulism is a rare but potentially fatal disease caused by toxin produced by Clostridium botulinum. This report is intended to inform medical practitioners and students on new way of botulism transfer in some patients. The case is reported from Sabzevar, Iran. In this paper a 46–year–old woman and her two daughters were affected by botulism due to consuming Kame (a diary product). Their history and clinical findings indicated symptoms of botulism. The patient was treated by anti–toxic medicine, and the diagnosis was determined by exposure history, clinical findings and response to anti-toxin treatment. This report indicated that Kame could cause life threatening botulism. Therefore further training on the methods and duration of preserving Kame is required for prevention as well as reporting similar cases for treatment.
