Limited data suggest that tigecycline may be of value in the treatment of Clostridiumdifficile infection. We reviewed our experience using tigecycline to treat severe c. difficile and compared outcomes to similarly ill patients who did not receive tigecycline. We found no difference between the groups. Further study is needed before tigecycline can be recommended for use in severe C. difficile infection. (C) 2014 The Authors.
