54 skos:definition Clostridium difficile is a Gram-positive spore-forming bacteria that is a normal component of the colon flora in humans. It can cause antibiotic-associated diarrhea (ADD) when competing bacteria in the gut flora have been killed by antibiotic treatment. Pseudomembranous enterocolitis can follow ADD, creating generalized inflammation of the colon.
