A Case Report on Antibiotic Associated Clostridium Difficile Infection

Gayathri S [4] | Jasmine Rachel Cherian [2] | Dr. Mohan Varughese

Abstract: Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) stands out as a significant culprit behind diarrhea, often spread through the fecal - oral route. Specifically, the strain known as C. difficile type BI/NAP1/027 is notably responsible for severe C. difficile infections (CDI). It leads the pack in causing antibiotic - associated diarrhea, alongside other pathogens such as Clostridium perfringens, Staphylococcus aureus, and Klebsiella oxytoca. In the past, antibiotics like clindamycin, cephalosporins, penicillins, and fluoroquinolones have been linked to CDI outbreaks. We report a case of Clostridium difficile - associated diarrhea.
