Abstract

Background: Salmonellosis is a worldwide public health issue and non-typhoid species are one of the most common causative agents of gastroenteritis in the western world.1 Typhoidal and Paratyphoidal salmonellae cause systemic syndromes characterised by sustained bacteraemia.2 Although the number of cases is under reported and therefore the incidence rates are underestimated,3 worldwide up to 1.3 billion non-typhoidal and an estimated 20 million typhoidal cases of Salmonella infection are reported annually.4,5
