Clostridium difficile and osteomyelitis

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

The role of anaerobic organisms, specifically Clostridium difficile, in clinical practice was not apparent until the late 1970s. Since then, its relevance in a variety of infections has become apparent. In patients who undergo invasive procedures for diagnosis and for whom antibiotic outcome rests heavily with organism identification, anaerobic cultures should always be performed.
