Synopsis: 
Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) per total stool samples and per total admissions increased at the University Hospital of the West Indies, Jamaica. Although most cases were nosocomial, there was a greater than expected frequency of community acquired CDI. Ceftazidime was the most common antibiotic associated with CDI.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: This study examined the frequency of Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) among hospital admission and diarrhoeal stool samples over a six-year period.
