PMID:  24667886     Owner:  NLM     Status:  Publisher    
After an accepted technique of abdominoplasty, a 66-year-old woman developed Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea, leading to toxic megacolon and subsequent subtotal colectomy. The presumed etiology is chronic use of a proton pump inhibitor. This was addressed in a 2012 "white paper" warning issued by the Food and Drug Administration. This article presents the course of this case as well as a review of the pertinent literature.
