Clostridium Difficile Infection

Clostridium difficile, or C. difficile for short, can be a very aggressive intestinal bug. Each year, this rod-shaped bacterium infects roughly 500,000 people in the U.S., sending more than 347,000 to the hospital for treatment. In extreme cases, C. difficile infection can be fatal, with estimates of C. diff-associated death ranging from 14,000 to 30,000 annually.
