Clostridium Difficile Bacteria - C0013120
Photograph - Tem
Clostridium difficile bacteria, colored transmission electron micrograph (TEM). These Gram-positive rod-shaped bacteria can cause pseudomembranous colitis (infection of the colon), one of the most common hospital-acquired infections, and antibiotic-associated diarrhea. These disorders are often due to the use of antibiotics, which kill off normal gut flora and can lead to an overgrowth of C. difficile. Infection can be fatal.
