Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) is a stool test used to identify this toxin, which usually occurs after long term antibiotic therapy. Clostridium difficile develops when the organism is allowed to thrive in the colon, most commonly after antibiotic use has eliminated competing flora.
The most common antibiotics that pose a potential risk for C. difficile include clindamycin, fluoroquinolones, ciprofloxacin, cephalosporins and penicillins.
