Abstract

Summary 669 cases of tetanus treated at the Cracovie University hospital between 1960 and 1989 are being reviewed. A vaccination campaign involving children and military personnel had started in 1962. Intensive care techniques were made available these last few years. The changes in epidemiology and prognosis are brought forth to demonstrate the impact of these measures on tetanus in Poland and the remaining efforts to be accomplished.
