Abstract

Although extra-intestinal non-typhoidal Salmonella infections are common in developing countries, infection of the mesenteric cyst with Salmonella enteritidis is an extremely rare occurrence. Review of the English literature has revealed one report up to this date. The case of a 4-year-old boy with a mesenteric cyst infected with Salmonella enteritidis is presented.
