A member asked:

Can c diff cause appendicitis? does pepto bismol (bismuth subsalicylate) effect testing of c diff?

Specializes in Gastroenterology

C Diff: To my knowledge there is no case report of C. Difficile causing acute appendicitis. Taking Pepto-Bismol should not have any effect on testing on the status of Clostridium Difficile infection.
