Conclusion

Given the increased incidence and severity of C difficile infections and the emergence of a highly virulent strain, prevention of CDAD by judicious use of antibiotics and infection control is of critical importance. The role of newer agents in this setting remains to be defined. Immunotherapy with pooled immune globulin may help avert surgery in patients with refractory CDAD.
