Non-typhoidal salmonellae are important pathogens causing bacteraemia, especially in immuno compromised patients, but there are limited data explicitly describing the clinical characteristics and outcome in these individuals. Recurrent invasive salmonellosis has been recognised as an AIDS-defining condition in HIV-positive patients since the 1980s. Salmonella meningitis is an infrequent complication of Salmonella sepsis, accounting for 0.8 - 6% of all cases of bacterial meningitis, and is associated with a high mortality rate.
