VELASQUEZ, M. Adelaida; ORTIZ, Juliana; ATEHORTUA, Santiago  and  AGUDELO, Carlos A.. Cervical lymphadenitis caused by no typhoid Salmonella in a diabetic patient. Rev. chil. infectol. [online]. 2017, vol.34, n.6, pp.610-612. ISSN 0716-1018.

No Typhoid Salmonella infection is one of the most common and widely spread foodborne diseases worldwide. Although most cases are limited to the gastrointestinal tract, extraintestinal involvement is not uncommon. However, adenitis as an isolated manifestation, is an unusual form of the disease. We report a case of Salmonella no Typhoid cervical lymphadenitis in a 67-year-old female with a recent diagnosis of diabetes mellitus, who was treated with surgery and ciprofloxacin.

Keywords : Non-Typhi Salmonella; cervical lymphadenitis; inmunosupression; diabetes mellitus.
