Abstract: During the last decade there have been many changes and advances in the research on Clostridium difficile infection (CDI). We have improved diagnostic and therapeutic tools and, at the same time, we have learned that the CDI implies, especially in the most vulnerable patients, an important morbidity. CDI has traditionally been undervalued and it is widely dispersed in hospitals. Surely, there is inertness in its management and there are also broad areas of improvement. If we add to this the high cost of the new drugs and the practical difficulties to implement the faecal microbiota transplant, we realize that we may not be taking full advantage of all the opportunities to improve patient's outcomes. The implementation of policies that favour the supervision of all CDI cases by an expert in infectious diseases will contribute to a better global management of this important disease.
