Résumé

Les auteurs rapportent un cas de tétanos diagnostiqué dans les suites d’une extraction dentaire, en l’absence de toute autre porte d'entrée.
Observation : Un patient a présenté un trismus persistant plusieurs jours après l’avulsion de 38 effectuée au cabinet dentaire. La diffusion des contractures et l’apparition de paroxysmes a permis de poser le diagnostic de tétanos.
Discussion : La possibilité de survenue d’un tétanos après une avulsion dentaire doit être gardée à l’esprit devant un trismus persistant avec extension rapide au cou et aux membres. Le chirurgien-dentiste doit connaître les symptômes du tétanos afin de référer le patient au plus tôt dans un service spécialisé.

Abstract
Post-dental extraction tetanus. About an observation

The authors report a case of tetanus diagnosed in the aftermath of tooth extraction, in the absence of any other front door.
Observation: A patient showed a persistent trismus several days after the extraction of tooth 38 performed at the dental office. The diffusion of tension and the appearance of paroxysms allowed the diagnosis of tetanus.
Discussion: The possibility of occurrence of tetanus after a tooth extraction should be kept in mind before a persistent trismus with rapid expansion in the neck and limbs. The dentist should be aware of the symptoms of tetanus to refer the patient to a specialized department.
