Salmonella Typhi. A 40 yrs. diabetic male patient presented with painful swelling on a left side of neck. Patient
had past history of fever before 2 months with positive Widal test. On culture the pus yielded pure growth of
Salmonella Typhi. Blood culture was negative. Patient responded to incision and drainage and Ceftriaxone
treatment. [Kombade S NJIRM 2014; 5(5):118-119]
