농성검체에서의 Salmonella 분리
Salmonella Isolated from Purulent Specimens
Aside from the usual intestinal infections of salmonella, suppurative infections of different anatomic sites have been increasingly reported. During the period of 1977 to 1980, the authors isolated salmonella from 12 specimens obtained from unusual anatomic sites of patients at Yonsei Medical Center. The specimens or sources of isolation and diagnosis or underlying conditions were CSF with subdural abscess. CSF with meningitis, abscess of right neck with mediastinal teratoma, throat with patent ductus arteriosus, chest wall abscess with septic arthritis, rib abscess with tuberculous chondritis, osteomyelitis of humerus, osteomyelitis of tibia, psoas abscess, tubo-ovarian abscess, placenta with incomplete abortion, and retroperitoneal abscess with diabetes mellitus. Isolated salmonella were S. typhi 4, S.paratyphi-A 4, S.hirschfeldii(S. paratyphi-C) 2, and Salmonella group D 2. It can be said that salmonella abscess are not different clinically from other suppurative lesions, and the correct etiological diagnosis can be made solely on the basis of bacterial culture.
