After the initial reports of outbreaks of CDI in Europe associated with PCR ribotype 027 (RT027) in 2005 (2), a second incidence study was conducted in 2007, which showed that CDI incidence had increased to 90 cases/100,000 inhabitants (8,276 new cases).
The increasing incidence and severity of Clostridium difficile infections (CDIs) reported since 2001 in the United States and Canada (1,2) have been associated with the emergence of a hypervirulent ribotype 027 (2).
