Clostridium difficile: its role in Intestinal Disease. -Edward Balish, University of Wisconsin Medical School.

Infections caused by Clostridium difficile in hospitalized children are increasing. Toxins A and B are responsible for intestinal disease. C difficile is the most common cause of ated diarrhea and is a common health care-associated pathogen. The recent publication of clinical practice guidelines for C difficile infection in adults did not address issues that are specific to children. Clinical symptoms vary widely, from asymptomatic colonization to pseudomembranous colitis with bloody diarrhea, fever, and severe abdominal pain.

Clostridium difficile is the etiologic agent of pseudomembranous colitis, a severe, sometimes fatal disease that occurs in. .Toxin B is an extremely potent cytotoxin, but its role in the disease has not been as well studied.

Clostridium difficile is the etiologic agent of pseudomembranous colitis, a severe, sometimes fatal disease that occurs in adults undergoing antimicrobial therapy. The disease, ironically, has been most effectively treated with antibiotics, although some of the newer methods of treatment such as the replacement of the bowel flora may prove more beneficial for patients who continue to relapse with pseudomembranous colitis.

Despite the tremendous progress made during the last few years in understanding the pathogenesis, epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment of Clostridium intestinal disease, many extremely important and fundamental questions remain to be answered.

Clostridioides difficile infection (CDI or C-diff), also known as Clostridium difficile infection, is a symptomatic infection due to the spore-forming bacterium Clostridioides difficile. Symptoms include watery diarrhea, fever, nausea, and abdominal. Symptoms include watery diarrhea, fever, nausea, and abdominal pain. It makes up about 20% of cases of d diarrhea. Complications may include pseudomembranous colitis, toxic megacolon, perforation of the colon, and sepsis.

Despite the tremendous progress made during the last few years in understanding the pathogenesis, epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment of Clostridium difficile-associated intestinal disease, many extremely important and fundamental questions remain to be answered. The objectives of this book are to summarize the available information regarding Clostridium difficile and its role in intestinal disease and to serve as a basis for future investigations in this challenging area.Clostridium difficile: its role in Intestinal Disease. An excellent volume that should appeal not only to the devotee of C difficile but to all gastroenterologists and microbiologists, this will not languish on my library shelves like so many other books I have reviewed. It will be regularly thumbed. --R.H. George, consultant microbiologist, Children's Hospital, BirminghamClostridium difficile: Its Role in Intestinal disease. The book is well written and informative; it has a vast amount of information packed in it...this book would be a welcome addition to the researchers and clinicians interested in C difficile-associated intestinal diseases. --Edward Balish, University of Wisconsin Medical School
