Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea after antibiotic treatment for traveler's diarrhea.Clin Infect Dis. 2008 Apr 01; 46(7):1060-3.CI
Diarrhea commonly affects international travelers. Episodes are usually short-lasting, but in some patients, symptoms may persist. Clostridium difficile infection should be excluded in travelers with prolonged disease. We report what is, to our knowledge, the first reported study of patients with C. difficile-associated diarrhea after receipt of antibiotic treatment for traveler's diarrhea.
