Antibiotic-associated diarrhea (AAD) is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality. The most common pathogen associated with AAD is Clostridium difficile which is among the leading causes of nosocomial infections. Succesfull treatment for this condition involves prolonged use of antibiotics or livestool enimas. Evidence suggests that the use of probiotics has no role in treatment or prevention of this condition.
