Abstract

Soft tissue infections are among the rare manifestations of extra intestinal salmonellosis and occur more frequently in immunocompromised patients. Herein we report a case of a 51-year-old white male with type II diabetes mellitus, diagnosed with supraclavicular abscess caused by Salmonella enteritidis. The patient denied any gastrointestinal symptoms, and stool cultures were negative. After incision, drainage, and administration of intravenous ampicillin (4 x 1.5 g/day for two weeks) the patient recovered completely. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of cervical soft tissue abscess caused by Salmonella enteritidis without preceeding gastrointestinal symptoms. We feel that the presence of diabetes was a risk factor for developing the infection.
