Clostridioides difficile infection (CDI) is a major public health concern for pediatric and adult patients. The management of pediatric CDI poses a challenge to healthcare providers due to lack of strong randomized controlled trials to guide pharmacological management. Additionally, recent updates to CDI guidelines recommend oral vancomycin over metronidazole for the management of CDI in adults, leaving questions regarding how to best manage pediatric patients. This continuing education pharmacotherapy review describes available evidence for the safety and efficacy of medications used in the treatment and management of pediatric CDI and aims to clarify discrepancies between pediatric and adult recommendations.

Eating disorders are complex, potentially life-threatening conditions characterized by disruptive eating behaviors that significantly impact physical and psychosocial functioning. Eating disorders are associated with devastating medical complications and high mortality rates if left untreated. As the prevalence of eating disorders among adolescents continues to increase, it is important that clinicians are knowledgeable about early signs of disordered eating and facilitate timely evaluation and care coordination. The epidemiology, risk factors, and medical complications for common eating disorders in primary care such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder, are presented. An approach to screening for eating disorders, clinical assessment, and treatment options are outlined. J Pediatr Health Care. (2022) 36, 618−627.
