Clostridium difficile treatment update

Although this free full text review focuses on fidaxomicin it's the best overview of all available treatments I've seen in a long time.

Fidaxomicin seems to be the winner hands down over vancomycin and metronidazole for initial treatment. It's even less costly than vancomycin unless you get the vancomycin compounded. Despite this UptoDate remains conservative about fidaxomicin saying though it can be considered, more studies are needed.
