Arteritis due to Salmonella infection is unusual complication of Salmonella infection. Aorta is more common involved than peripheral arteries and, in many cases, aortic aneurysm is produced. Contrast enhanced computed tomography scan is used as the most preferred diagnostic method. Surgical resection with use of antibiotics more than 6 weeks is used as main treatment and medical treatment alone without surgical resection is associated with a high mortality rate. As the incidence of non-typhoidal Salmonellosis has increased, its clinical importance has grown greater. We report a case of aortitis due to Salmonella infection which was treated successfully by antibiotics alone, that occurred after Chinese travel.
Key words: Salmonella infection; Aortitis; Chinese travel
