Clinical and endoscopic findings in patients early in the course of clostridium difficile-associated pseudomembranous colitis.

Abstract

Endoscopic and clinical features are reported for 39 patients detected early in the course of pseudomembranous colitis. Disease was detected early by virtue of careful surveillance in patients in whom diarrhea developed. Early proctosigmoidoscopic findings in pseudomembranous colitis are illustrated. Clinical presentation includes development of fever, leukocytosis, abdominal pain, and even an ileus picture on radiography in addition to diarrhea.
