Abstract

Several cases in which Salmonella, spread by the haematogenous route, produced localised inflammation have previously been described in the literature. The infecting of an operation wound through direct contamination by Salmonella has earlier been reported only once, in connection with appendectomy. The present case report describes a case in which recurrent sinuses infected by Salmonella were formed in the operative wound.
