Abstract

Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) in non-hospitalized patients has been reported with increased frequency, whereas an association between CDI and pregnancy has not been highlighted. We report a case of toxic megacolon complicating a severe CDI during the second trimester of pregnancy in a patient without traditional risk factors, such as antibiotic use, immunodeficiency, and prolonged and recent hospitalization.
