Abstract provided by Publisher
Salmonella infections are a public health problem in Turkey,
as all over the world. Salmonella spp. can cause
very different infections such as gastroenteritis, typhoidparatyphoid
fever, bacteremia, local metastatic infections
and chronic carriage. Salmonella spondylodiscitis occurs
rarely in the adult population. In this case report, we have
presented a 66 years old female patient followed with the
diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis and treated with prednisolone.
The patient had a new diagnosis of Salmonella
enteritidis and we aimed to discuss similar cases by the
culture of lumbar empyema culture ampiciline, cefotaxime,
trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole, ciprofloxacin was revealed
the presence of resistant S.enteritidis. The patient
has received ciprofloxacin 2x200 mg per day for 3 weeks
as intravenous. And patient was discharged with advice of
using ciprofloxacin as per oral long three months
