Core Tip Pseudomembranous colitis (PMC) is mostly caused by Clostridium difficile (CDI). The incidence of CDI-related PMC is 3%-8% and is increasing. Other than CDI, ischemia, infections, medications, and inflammatory conditions can cause PMC. Infections from S. aureus, E. coli, Klebsiella, and Strongyloidiasis may also cause PMC. Non-infectious causes of PMC include chemical endoscope cleaning agents, intestinal ischemia, drug abuse from cocaine, inflammatory bowel disease, and microscopic colitis. Understanding various causes of pseudomembranous colitis helps avoid over usage of antibiotics and focus on targeted therapy and early diagnosis. This is a concise review of non-CDI pseudomembranous colitis.
