Abstract

The clinical spectrum of extra-intestinal salmonellosis, comprising enteric fever and invasive infections owing to non-typhoidal Salmonellae, is well known. We report an otherwise healthy patient with isolated splenic infarction caused by group B Salmonella. She was seropositive for the O antigen of Salmonella group B and stool cultures were positive for group B Salmonellae. After appropriate antimicrobial therapy, her complaints disappeared and microbiological tests for Salmonellae became negative.
