Diphtheria is a throat infection which can lead to breathing difficulties. The illness is very rare in countries with an immunisation programme. Diphtheria bacteria enter through and attack the skin lining the nose, mouth and throat.

They cause a greyish membrane (like a skin) to form in the throat. This leads to difficulty in swallowing and breathing.

Diphtheria complications

  • The bacteria produces a toxin (chemical) which affects the body and can lead to nerve paralysis and heart failure.
  • 5-10% of people with the disease die.
