Topics Abstract Clostridium difficile is the most common cause of health care-associated and antibiotic-associated diarrhoea. C lostridium difficile is a frequent cause of both nosocomial and antibiotic-associated diarrhoea, and is usually health care-associated. It is infrequently found in the gastrointestinal tract of healthy adults, but may colonise up to two-thirds of young children before they are weaned. In healthy people, C. difficile does not cause problems; resistance to infection is thought

1833. Lactational mastitis and breast abscess. Diagnosis and management in general practice

practice. Discussion Lactational mastitis is usually bacterial in aetiology and can generally be effectively managed with oral antibiotics. Infections that do not improve rapidly require further investigation for breast abscess and nonlactational causes of inflammation, including the rare cause of inflammatory breast cancer. In addition to antibiotics, management of lactational breast infections include symptomatic treatment, assessment of the infant’s attachment to the breast, and reassurance (...) or anatomical conditions such as cleft palate or tongue-tie which may interfere with attachment. 6,9 Observation of breastfeeding can determine if there are difficulties with attachment to the breast. A lactation consultant may be helpful. Investigation Mastitis is a clinical diagnosis and investigations are not indicated in the initial assessment. 1 breast infection that does not improve with a course of appropriate antibiotics should be investigated with breast ultrasound. 5 This may distinguish
