What is Clostridioides Difficile?

Clostridioides difficile (C. diff) is an infection that affects the large intestine. The C. diff bacteria infects the colon, causing inflammation. In some individuals, C diff. develops after taking antibiotics for other infections, as antibiotics can disrupt the healthy bacteria in the intestines. In these cases, symptoms of C diff. may begin to develop 5-10 days after starting the antibiotics course. Symptoms of C diff. include: diarrhea, moderate to severe abdominal cramping, fever, dehydration, loss of appetite, weight loss, swollen abdomen and blood in stool. In some patients, C. diff may be recurrent, resulting in another infection in the following 2-8 weeks. Antibiotics are typically used for treating C. diff, but in patients with recurrent infections, treatments including surgery and fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) may be utilized.
