Abstract
ABSTRACT
The article presents information on abstracts related to colorectal. An abstract presents information on the intravenous immunoglobulin in the treatment of severe clostridium difficile diarrhoea (CDD). CDD is common in frail hospitalised patients. It leads to significant morbidity and mortality, and prolonged hospitalization. Patients who develop severe, prolonged, or recurrent CDD have a poor antitoxin antibody response leading to low serum antitoxin antibodies. Use of intravenous immunoglobulin has been advocated in these patients.
