Abstract

Background:      Salmonellosis is a common bacterial disease that affects the intestinal tract. Salmonella Enteritidis (SE) is the predominant cause of the food-borne salmonellosis in humans. The aim of this study was to investigate antimicrobial resistance of Salmonella enterica isolates detected in stool samples taken from infected children in Tehran, Iran. Methods:     Stool samples of patients with diarrhea in pediatric hospital in Tehran were collected, from June 2017 to May 2018. Isolation and identification carried out by conventional methods and susceptibility testing were performed according to the standard procedure of the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI). The ERIC-PCR was used to study the genetic relatedness of the isolates. Results:     Of 800 samples, 24 were identified as Salmonella species with 14 different antibiotypes. The dominant strain was S. enteritidis 12 (50%). Conclusion:     Our findings showed that S. enteritidis was the most frequent isolate among salmonellosis in Tehran.
