What are the symptoms of clostridium difficile?

Diarrhea

Most often following antimicrobial therapy (or sometimes cancer chemotherapy), the patient develops watery diarrhea which often has a mousy, horse barn like odor. There can be fever and sometimes a quite elevated white blood cell count. Some strains, in the last few years, seem to be hyper producers of toxin with more severe symptoms likely.
