Abstract

MARAJ, A; KISS, A  and  LUVHENGO, T E. Salmonella thyroiditis: A case report and review of the literature. S. Afr. j. surg. [online]. 2013, vol.51, n.4, pp.149-150. ISSN 2078-5151.

Thyroid abscesses are rare, and Staphylococcus aureus is the main causative organism. Abscesses caused by other organisms are even rarer. This report describes a case of Salmonella thyroiditis in an HIV-positive patient. Fine-needle aspiration cytology was performed and Salmonella sp. were cultured. The patient was successfully treated with antibiotics and incision and drainage.
