Culture Clostridium Difficile Test: Symptoms, Diagnosis, and Cost

Clostridium difficile, commonly known as C. difficile, is a type of bacterium that causes severe diarrhea and inflammation of the colon. It is a common healthcare-associated infection, especially among individuals who have recently taken antibiotics or undergone surgery. The culture Clostridium difficile test is a diagnostic procedure that helps in detecting the presence of the bacteria in the stool and diagnosing the infection. In this blog, we will discuss the symptoms, diagnosis, and cost of the culture Clostridium difficile test in India.

Symptoms of Clostridium Difficile Infection

The symptoms of C. difficile infection can range from mild to severe. Some of the common symptoms include:

  • Watery diarrhea, which can be bloody in severe cases
  • Abdominal pain and cramping
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Fever
  • Loss of appetite
  • Dehydration

In severe cases, C. difficile infection can lead to life-threatening complications such as toxic megacolon and sepsis. Therefore, it is important to seek medical attention if you experience any of the above symptoms.

Diagnosis of Clostridium Difficile Infection

The diagnosis of C. difficile infection involves a combination of clinical evaluation, laboratory tests, and imaging studies. The culture Clostridium difficile test is one of the commonly used laboratory tests for detecting the presence of the bacteria in the stool.

The culture Clostridium difficile test involves collecting a stool sample and sending it to the laboratory for analysis. In the laboratory, the stool sample is cultured on a special medium that promotes the growth of C. difficile bacteria. The presence of the bacteria is confirmed by examining the culture under a microscope or performing a biochemical test.

Other laboratory tests that may be used for diagnosing C. difficile infection include:

  • Toxin enzyme immunoassay (EIA)
  • Toxin polymerase chain reaction (PCR)
  • Toxin culture cytotoxicity assay

In some cases, imaging studies such as computed tomography (CT) scan or colonoscopy may be performed to evaluate the extent of inflammation in the colon.

Cost of Culture Clostridium Difficile Test in India

The cost of the culture Clostridium difficile test in India varies depending on the location, laboratory, and healthcare provider. On average, the cost of the test ranges from INR 1,200 to INR 2,000. At DNA Labs India, the cost of the culture Clostridium difficile test is INR 1,474.2.
