Abstract An eleven-year-old boy presented with fever and hip pain, with limited mobility of the right side of the hip. Computed tomography scan revealed an increased volume of the right coxo-femoral joint, requiring surgical drainage of purulent secretion, from which Salmonella enterica was isolated. After four weeks of treatment with third-generation cephalosporin, he was discharged with a favorable evolution. Invasive disease caused by Salmonella spp represents a small proportion of salmonellosis cases, although it is responsible for greater rates of hospitalization, morbidity and mortality. Children under 5 years, elders over 60 years and immunodeficient patients have greater risk for invasive salmonellosis.

However, extra-intestinal infections are known to occur, with purulent pericarditis associated with cardiac tamponade being rare. This case report is of a 57-year-old male with Crohn’s disease initiated on infliximab therapy two months prior to present...

We report the case of a 75-year-old patient seen in an emergency setting for sudden-onset abdominal pain with fever. An abdominal angio-computed tomography (CT) scan showed a sacciform infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm, with an inflammatory aspect and periaortic hematoma. Surgical cure was undertaken because of the impending rupture. An interposition aortic replacement graft was implanted. Blood cultures and bacteriological study of the aortic wall isolated a S. pneumoniae. The anatomical pathology study reported fibrin clot leukocyte remodeling of the aortic wall. An intravenous antibiotic regimen was started. Sev...

Authors: Girometti N, Giannella M, Brocchi S, Badia L, Calza L, Viale P Abstract An HIV-infected 49-year-old man was admitted with polyuria, fever, chills and a dull left lumbar pain. Laboratory tests showed increased C-reactive protein while urine analysis and abdomen ultrasound scan were negative. Blood cultures revealed a Salmonella paratyphi B, identified through MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry. Targeted antibiotic therapy with intravenous piperacillin/tazobactam was started and a multi-phase contrast-enhanced abdomen CT-scan was performed at 24 hours from admission showing a saccular aneurysm of the abdominal aort...

A 75-year-old immunosuppressed man presented with fever and central abdominal pain three weeks after having positive blood cultures for Salmonella Enteritidis. A computed tomography scan demonstrated a contained perforation of a non-aneurysmal abdominal aorta. Salmonella aortitis was suspected and given his recent history of coronary artery stent insertion, endovascular aortic repair was performed, with lifelong antibiotic therapy. At 6 months, there were no remaining clinical or radiological concerns for aortitis or aneurysmal development.
