  • (pathology) A rare but serious medical condition caused by ingesting the nerve toxin botulin, that is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. The bacteria is anaerobic and so grows only in the absense of oxygen, such as in canned foods. Contaminated cans bulge from increased pressure. While modern industrial canning rarely allows botulism to occur it was at one time a significant danger and can still pose a threat in home canned products.
