This was the third time she presented with chest wall abscess which was diagnosed as Salmonella typhi
abscess and successfully treated at our hospital.

8 This has resulted in misdiagnosis, inappropriate prescriptions of antibiotics and ultimately to the emergence of multidrug resistant salmonella typhi
Tissue and wound culture from surgical specimens grew Salmonella Typhi
sensitive to ceftriaxone.
Isolation of Salmonella typhi
on blood culture remains the best method of diagnosis but many other tests including TUBEX, Typhidot, Widal and others are widely used in developing countries for several reasons.
The compound proved to be active against 3 out of the 6 bacterial strains used and was particularly active against Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeroginosa and Salmonella typhi
(MIC values of 32[micro]g/ml for the first and 64[micro]g/ml for the others, respectively).
hirta was observed against Salmonella typhi
, Bacillus subtillis and Staphylococcus aureus.
It is most commonly due to a type of bacterium called Salmonella typhi
Typhoid and paratyphoid are almost identical diseases that are caused by the bacteria salmonella typhi
and salmonella paratyphi, respectively.
One category consists of typhoid serotypes ( Salmonella typhi
and Salmonella paratyphi ), which cause classic typhoid fever, and the other are made up of non-typhoid serotypes (non-typhoidal Salmonella or NTS) that can colonize the gastrointestinal tracts of a broad range of animals, and more than 200 non-typhoid serotypes are pathogenic to humans.
was fully sensitive to meropenum ceftriaxone and cetazidime while paratyphi A or B was fully sensitive to ceftriaxone ceftazidime and imipenem (Table 3).
Widal test was performed which showed a titre of 80 against 'O' (somatic) antigen and 160 against 'H' (flagella) antigen of Salmonella Typhi
(recommended cutoff titres in our hospital is [greater than or equal to] 1:80 and [greater than or equal to] 1:160 for the 'O' and 'H' antigens respectively).
