Clostridium tetani is a rod-shaped, anaerobic bacterium of the genus Clostridium. It's a gram-positive and resembles tennis rackets or drumsticks on a gram stain. It can be found as spores in soil and the gastrointestinal tract of animals. It produces a potent biological toxin which is the causative agent of tetanus. Ancient people recognized the relationship between wounds and fatal muscle spasms. Arthur Nicolaier isolated tetanus from soil bacteria. Antonie Carl and Giorgio Rattone...

Clostridium perfringens (formerly known as C. welchii) is a Gram-positive, rod-shaped, anaerobic, spore-forming bacterium of the genus Clostridium. It is always present in nature and is a normal component of decaying vegetation, marine sediment, the intestinal tract of humans, other vertebrates, insects, and soil. It can be a human pathogen and also harmlessly ingested. Commonly it is encountered in infections as a component of the normal flora where it takes a minor role in the disease....

Clostridium difficile, also known as "CDF/cdf", or "C. diff", is a Gram-positive bacteria of the genus Clostridium that causes severe diarrhea and other intestinal disease when competing bacteria in the gut flora are wiped out by antibiotics. They are anaerobic, spore-forming rods and is the most serious cause of antibiotic-associated diarrhea and potentially to pseudomembranous colitis. C. difficile bacteria naturally resides in the gut of a small percentage of the adult population. Others...

Clostridium botulinum is a gram-positive, rod-shaped bacterium that produces neurotoxins, known as botulinum neurotoxins types A-G, that cause the flaccid muscular paralysis seen in botulism. It is the main paralytic agent in botox and is commonly found in soil. It is also an obligate anaerobe, meaning oxygen is poisonous to the cells. Superoxide dismutase helps C. botulinum tolerate traces of oxygen. It was first recognized and isolated in 1895 by Emile van Ermengem. Subsequent outbreaks...
