Opfølgning efter nontyfoid Salmonella-bakteriæmi er vigtig på grund af risiko for endovaskulær infection

    Abstract

    An 81-year-old male with atherosclerosis had an episode of bacteraemia with Salmonella dublin six weeks prior to admission to hospital. He presented with confusion, fever and abdominal pain. Blood cultures revealed S. dublin, and an 18F-fluor deoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography showed aortitis. Ceftriaxon and ciprofloxacin was administered. The patient was not a candidate for surgery and two weeks later he died from multiple organ failure. Follow-up visits with blood cultures after the first bacteraemia episode might have allowed for earlier diagnosis of the relapse.
