Abstract

An update on 2010 clinical practice guideline on Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) by the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) and Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA) was published in March 2018. This new version of guideline not only includes significant changes in the management of this infection and reflects the evolving controversy over best methods for diagnosis and threatment of CDI but has also incorporated recommendations for children. This document currently is the most complete and up to date source of information on CDI. In the present article we reviewed this new IDSA/SHEA guideline and compared it with existing European and Russian guidelines.
