ConclusionWe present an unusual case of nontyphoidalSalmonella  enteritidis bacteremia complicated by acute kidney injury in a middle-aged woman with a previous history of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and gastrostomy feeding tube insertion. Further investigation is needed to identify whether gastric surgeries or procedures are independent risk factors for invasive nontyphoidal salmonellosis.

Non-typhoidal Salmonella (NTS) is a common cause for self-limiting gastroenteritis, representing a public health concern globally. NTS is one of the leading causes of foodborne illnesses in China; however, the invasive infection caused by NTS is largely underappreciated. Here, we reported an NTS invasive infection caused by an infrequently reported serovar Telelkebir (13,23:d:e,n,z15) strain FJ001 in China, which carries antimicrobial-resistant genes [fosA7 and aac(6′)-Iaa] and typhoid-toxin genes (cdtB, pltA, and pltB). By conducting the whole genomic sequencing, we also investigated the relatedness of this strain w...

Epub 2021 Jul 28.ABSTRACTINTRODUCTION: On 15 June 2020, the National Public Health Organization was informed about the identification of two cases of Escherichia coli Ο157 infection in a small town in the Peloponnese Region in Greece and we suspected an outbreak.METHODS: We asked the local pharmacist to assist us to verify the outbreak by providing the daily number of over-the-counter anti-diarrheal drugs sold from 20 May 2020 onwards. The pharmacist asked customers with gastroenteritis to submit stool samples at the local hospital. Samples were teste...
