New C difficile Guidelines Refine Diagnosis, Add FMT

The Infectious Diseases Society of America and the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America have updated the 2010 clinical practice guidelines on Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) in adults.

The update adds recommendations for children, refines combinations and sequences of diagnostic tests, and changes antibiotic choices. It also, for the first time, includes guidance for implementing fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT). The guidelines are published in Clinical Infectious Diseases.
