Abstract

A 94-year-old man had pseudomembranous colitis while taking low dose trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole for recurrent urinary tract infection. The suppressive effect of low dose trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole on normal colonic flora appeared to be a factor in the development of pseudomembranous colitis in this patient.
