Charlotte L Durand et al. Pediatr Infect Dis J.

Abstract

We present a case of Clostridium difficile associated colitis in a 10-year-old girl; following 2 consecutive courses of oral antibiotics she developed severe diarrhea and a hip effusion. This is the fourth published pediatric case of C. difficile associated reactive arthritis. C. difficile toxins A and B were isolated from stool culture. She made a full recovery following metronidazole therapy.
