Abstract

A case of meningitis caused by a strain of Salmonella typhimurium in a 3 yr old leukemic child is described. The infection occurred during the phase of complete haematologic remission. It has a very rapid course and the child died in a few days. The epidemiology, pathogenesis and therapeutic aspects of this uncommon localization of salmonella infection are discussed. Its relation to malignancies such as leukemias and lymphomas is also pointed out.
