I know it for sure that C. perfringens produces about 12 type toxins = only one is tested through UW and Kaplan = toxin a - or LECITHINASE which causes Gas gangrene and HEMOLYSIS = if destroy RBC then Hypoxemia = SANS respond tachycardia = but I'm not sure if it is a direct cause, in can be affect of other 11 toxins anyway - I have never encountered any questions asking the mechanism = from where did you get it ? in some NBME questions?
