Abstract

A 74 year-old male patient was admitted to the emergency department due to diarrhea of a one-month duration. The patient had 5 to 7 bowel movements/day of liquid stool, without blood or mucus. He had also undergone a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tube placement 10 weeks previously due to post-stroke dysphagia, with endoscopic confirmation of its correct positioning. A course of antibiotics had already been prescribed and there was no improvement of the symptoms.
