Tetanus with complete immunization record

The patient, a 20-year-old female with a complete immunization record, sought medical attention after experiencing increasing fatigue, difficulty opening her jaw, and stiffness in her neck. These symptoms developed five days following a minor injury where she stepped on a rusty nail, which penetrated the sole of her right foot. Upon initial examination, she exhibited trismus (lockjaw), pronounced muscle spasms in her right leg and neck, and an elevated body temperature of 38°C. The physical manifestation of these symptoms and the recent history of injury led to her being rushed to emergency care for further evaluation and management.
