Abstract

Abstract TYPHOID with typhoid (Salmonella typhosa) meningitis is rare and an extremely grave disease, considered fatal in newborn infants.* Kantor5 states that he knows of only two cases of Salmonella meningitis in babies under one month of age who recovered; neither, however, was caused by S. typhosa. Ripy's patient was over a year old. Henderson6 has an excellent and comprehensive collection of 144 Salmonella meningitis cases; he added 3 of his own, making a total of 147 of all types, but omitted a case of S. typhosa, which Beene and co-workers7 include. He mentions the frequency of pneumonitis or bronchitis, the presence or absence of gastrointestinal symptoms, and the frequency of meningococcic meningitis preceding the Salmonella infections. Beene, Hansen, and Fulton7 have references to 87 additional cases of Salmonella meningitis of various types reported since Henderson6 in describing their first known case of Salmonella sp.
