a bacterial species that is an important etiologic agent of enteric fever in developing countries.

Sal·mo·nel·la enterica subsp. paratyphi B

(formerly known as Salmonella schottmülleri), consists of two distinct types of strains, those that produce enteric fever, found primarily in humans, and those producing gastroenteritis in humans, also found in animal species. This species includes 56 strains distinguishable by phage typing and/or biotyping, features of epidemiologic value.

Sal·mo·nel·la enterica subsp. ty·phi·mu·ri·um

a bacterial species causing food poisoning in humans; it is a natural pathogen of all warm-blooded animals and is also found in snakes and pet turtles; worldwide, it is the most frequent cause of gastroenteritis due to Salmonella enterica species.

Sal·mo·nel·la enterica subsp. chol·er·ae·su·is
