Feedback:
Clinical indications for metronidazole include prevention or treatment of anaerobic bacterial infections (e.g., in colorectal surgery, intra-abdominal infections) and treatment of C. difficile infections associated with pseudomembranous colitis. The other listed antibiotics are not used for the treatment of Clostridium difficileassociated diarrhea.
