Abstract

A child with signs and symptoms of acute gas-troenteritis developed localization of her pain to the right lower quadrant. A clinical diagnosis of appendicitis was made and an inflamed appendix was found at surgery. The postoperative period was marked by high spiking fevers and profuse nonbloody diarrhea. Cultures of the appendix and the stool revealed Salmonella typhimurium. Nontyphoidal Salmonella organisms are a rare cause of acute suppurative appendicitis. Intraoperative cultures of the appendix and peritoneal fluid as well as postoperative cultures of the diarrheal fluid were crucial in elucidating the cause of this patient’s unusual course.
