Malaria chemoprophylaxis with doxycycline is commonly used in the United Kingdom and in many other countries. It is considered to be associated with an increased risk of Clostridium difficile associated diarrhea (CDAD). We describe a case of diarrhea and a positive stool assay for C. difficile in a returning traveler, and review available literature. The commonly held concept of an association between doxycycline chemoprophylaxis and CDAD is not supported by available data.
