41 Possible Causes for Clostridium Difficile Toxin in Stool, Hemoglobin Decreased

  • Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

    There were no pathogenic bacteria in stool culture and hemoculture remained sterile. Toxins A and B of Clostridium difficile were not detected in stool.[]

  • Cronkhite-Canada Syndrome

    Stool cultures, stool clostridium difficile toxin and celiac panel were all negative.[] Microbiology: negativity in stool cultures, urine cultures, parasites in stools, Clostridium difficile toxine, mantoux, Helicobacter pylori serology, HIV, citomegalovirus,[] Fats quantification in stool tests was invaluable.[]

  • Crohn's Disease

    Microbiological testing for infectious diarrhoea including Clostridium difficile toxin is recommended.[] […] tests for pathogens, parasites or Clostridium difficile toxin, drug or alcohol abuse, hepatic, neurological, endocrine, renal or other major systemic disease, and cancer[] Additional stool tests may be needed for patients who have travelled abroad. See separate Traveller's Diarrhoea article.[]

  • Malabsorption Syndrome

    […] culture – to detect bacterial infection Clostridium difficile and C. diff toxin testing – to detect bacterial overgrowth as cause of persistent diarrhea Ova and parasite[] […] examination (O&P) – to detect parasites as cause of persistent diarrhea Stool white blood cells – present in some inflammatory intestinal diseases Gastrointestinal pathogens[] […] sedimentation rate (ESR) – to detect inflammation in the body, which may be caused, for example, by inflammatory bowel disease Fecal fat – to detect decreased ability to digest fat Stool[]

  • Pediatric Ulcerative Colitis

    Stool sample analysis should include cultures and clostridium difficile toxins evaluation.[] Stool samples should also be examined via cultures, to rule out an infectious cause for the symptoms. Clostridium difficile toxins A and B should also be ruled out.[]

  • Amebiasis

    […] culture, and tests for bacterial toxins(for example, Clostridium difficile toxins (12).” Stool examination tests are given in a series of three, to detect the presence of[] […] present with dysentery and are at risk for acquiring amebic infection should initially be screened with a combination E. histolytica ELISA test (if available), bacterial stool[]

  • Cyclic Neutropenia

    […] of platelet count and hemoglobin as well as severe bone and joint pain predominantly in the middle and lower back and purulent diarrhea.[] If diarrhea is present, stool is evaluated for enteric bacterial pathogens and Clostridium difficile toxins.[] AML was diagnosed recently when she presented with decreasing platelets and hemoglobin.[]

  • Infectious Colitis

    Acomplete blood count ( CBC ) measures hemoglobin and hematocrit, looking for anemia.[] Escherichia coli (STEC) or Clostridium difficile, or colonic inflammation by endoscopy.[] Acomplete blood count ( CBC ) measures hemoglobin and hematocrit , looking for anemia .[]

  • Colitis

    Acomplete blood count ( CBC ) measures hemoglobin and hematocrit, looking for anemia.[] History of prior antibiotic use or recent hospitalization should prompt stool assay for Clostridium difficile toxin.[] Acomplete blood count ( CBC ) measures hemoglobin and hematocrit , looking for anemia .[]

  • Retrocecal Appendicitis

    The hemoglobin level was slightly decreased to the level of 11 g/dL and his platelet count was normal. The C-reactive protein level and ESR were elevated.[] His stool was positive for Clostridium difficile toxin B at the time of admission, for which he received a 2-week course of oral vancomycin therapy.[] There was no intrarectal tenderness or mass, and the stool was heme negative. Intravenous ampicillin, gentamicin, and metronidazole were initiated.[]
