  • CONCLUSIONS: Outcome data investigating the diagnosis of AMC must be interpreted in light of the limitations of the low-level evidence studies published to date. Proposed diagnostic criteria include: (1) the exclusion of organic disease; (2) a radiological sigmoid diameter of ~ 10 cm; (3) and constipation, distension, abdominal pain and/or gas distress. A proportion of patients with AMC may be currently misdiagnosed as having functional gastrointestinal disorders. Our conclusions are inevitably tentative, but will hopefully stimulate further research on this enigmatic condition.

  • CONCLUSIONS: Under strict standard hygiene and contact isolation for symptomatic patients, genotyping of clinical isolates revealed that in pediatric cancer patients, CDI is not necessarily based on nosocomial transmission. The rate of CDI-related severe complications was low. What is Known: • Pediatric cancer patients face an increased risk of Clostridium difficile-associated disease due to immunosuppression, cancer chemotherapy, mucositis, and dysbiosis following intravenous broad-spectrum antimicrobial treatment. • C. difficile may be transmitted from patient to patient. What is New: • Under strict standard hygiene and contact isolation for symptomatic patients, genotyping of clinical isolates revealed that in pediatric cancer patients, CDI is not necessarily based on nosocomial transmission. • The rate of CDI-related severe complications was low.
