Benaissa E | Benlahlou Y | Chadli M | Maleb A | Elouennass M


Abstract: Salmonella are Gram-negative, motile and facultative anaerobic bacilli. The genus Salmonella consists of two species (S. enterica and S. bongori), with S. enterica being the most common. Salmonella infections are usually manifested by gastroenteritis, bacteremia or septicaemia. Extra-intestinal complications, such as pleuro-pulmonary complications secondary to non-typhoid serotypes are extremely rare, with only a few cases in the last century. These are usually immunocompromised patients. But it is necessary to know how to evoke them even in the absence of notion of acute diarrhoea preceding the appearance of the respiratory symptomatology, and also, to seek the risk factors and possibly, other secondary localizations. We report a case of purulent pleurisy with Salmonella choleresuis sp complicating a pulmonary abscess.
