Diphtheria is a severe infection caused in humans by toxigenic strains of Corynebacterium diphtheriae bacteria. If left untreated, it leads to death in 5 to 25% of cases. It generally affects the upper respiratory tracts, causing pseudomembrane formation and sometimes leading to suffocation. The infection can be complicated by systemic symptoms caused by the diphtheria toxin. Scientists from the Institut Pasteur joined forces with Yemeni doctors and scientists to shed light on the current outbreak in Yemen.
