Abstract

This case, which we believe is the first report of a bacteriologically proven infection of the testis by Salmonella typhi, illustrates the occurrence of this complication in the convalescent phase of typhoid fever and the absence of a clinically evident preceding bacteremic phase. The case also emphasizes the need for prolonged antibiotic therapy and the role of surgery in treatment of relapses.
