Abstract

Clostridioides difficile is the leading cause of healthcare-associated diarrhea. Although the incidence of C. difficile-associated diarrhea is increasing worldwide, bacteremia due to C. difficile is relatively rare and represents the least frequent extra-colonic manifestation of C. difficile infection. To date, only 60 C. difficile bacteremia cases with detailed clinical patient characteristics have been reported in the literature, and another 77 cases have been identified in epidemiological reports. We report a rare and fatal case of bacteremia due to C. difficile from a Greek hospital.
