Twenty-two patients with multiple relapses of antibiotic-associated pseudomembranous colitis underwent a tapering dose of oral vancomycin for 21 days and a pulse dose of vancomycin for 21 days. In follow-up ranging from 2-12 months with a mean of 6 months, all patients have been without recurrence of the antibiotic-associated pseudomembranous colitis.
