Severity of Tetanus Dakar Score

The Dakar score should be evaluated at the 48th hour of illness. The score is used to define the severity of tetanus:

        - Score of 0 to 2: Tetanus frustrates.

        - Score equal to 3: Tetanus of moderate severity.

        - Score of 4 to 6: Severe tetanus.

Mortality is variable according to the score, but also according to the place of care and the patient's terrain.
