Clostridial diarrhea/enteritis

Clostridial diarrhea is caused by the gram-positive, anaerobic, spore-forming bacteria Clostridium spp. While the most common isolates are C. perfringens and C. difficile, multiple others, including C. septicum, C. cadaveris and C.sordellii, have also been associated with enterocolitis.
