Mehmet Baysallar.

A B S T R A C T 

Abstract
Summary
Clostridium botulinum which causes botulism, a neuroparalytic disease, attracts attention recently because of having an important role on classification of biological warfare agents. The diagnosis of botulism is not possible with routine laboratory tests. Culture from stool and food samples or toxin detection from the same samples and sera are preferable procedures. Early diagnosis and supportive treatment are important. Botulism is a notice required disease and its neurological signs are regressive after recovery.This agent which has a much lethal toxin must be considered important and the employee must comply with the biosafety measures during laboratory testing.

Botulizm ve Tanısal Yaklaşım

Özet
Özet
Nöroparalitik bir hastalık olan botulizmi oluşturan Clostridium botulinum biyolojik silah sınıflandırmasında yer aldığı için son yıllarda ayrı bir ilgi çekmektedir. Rutin laboratuar testleri ile botulizm tanısını koymak mümkün değildir. Dışkı ve gıdalardan kültür ile aynı örneklerden ve hasta serumundan toksin aranması tercih edilen işlemlerdir. Tedavide erken tanı ve destekleyici tedavi önemlidir. İyileşmeden sonra nörolojik belirtileri geri dönücü olan botulizm ihbarı zorunlu hastalıklardandır. Çok öldürücü toksini olan bu ajanın, göz ardı edilmemesi ve laboratuar analizleri esnasında biyogüvenlik tedbirlerine uyulması gerekmektedir.
