Core Tip Population-based studies demonstrate that non-antibiotic associated, community-acquired Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is increasingly common. Patients with community-acquired CDI are younger and have fewer comorbidities compared to patients with hospital-associated CDI. Proton pump inhibitors may be a risk factor for non-antibiotic associated, community-acquired CDI.
