Using a national database, we report an increasing trend in Clostridium difficile incidence among hospitalized children in the United States from 2003 to 2012. The incidence rate of CDI increased from 24.0 to 58.0 per 10,000 discharges per year (P<0.001) across all age groups, with the greatest increase in children 15 years and older.
