Abstract

In 1980 the Centers for Disease Control reported 30,004 isolates of Salmonella with the highest incidence in children, particularly in the first year of life.1 Intracranial infection occurs infrequently. Saphra and Winter2 found 77 cases of meningitis in a review of 7779 human Salmonella infections. Brain abscess and empyema were not mentioned in three large reviews of Salmonella infection.2"4We have recently treated two children for focal intracranial infection due to Salmonella. One had a subdural empyema from which Salmonella type E was isolated. The second had both a subdural empyema and a brain abscess. We present these two cases and review the previous reports of Salmonella epidural and subdural empyemas and brain abscesses.
