A 67-year-old Caribbean woman with chronic renal disease needing dialysis was admitted with diarrhoea. Three months before she had had an episode of antibiotic-associated diarrhoea, resulting from Clostridium difficile. She had been treated, the diarrhoea had resolved, and she had no further courses of antibiotics in the interim. She also had psoriasis, had been on prednisolone for many years, and had diverticulosis.
