Abstract:

Salmonella species have been known to rarely cause breast abscess. Seeding at distant sites after bacteremia can lead to abscess formation weeks to months after initial infections, thus, posing a diagnostic challenge. Salmonella Paratyphi A is an extremely rare cause of breast abscess. We report a longstanding case of recurring abscess in a 33-year-old non-lactating female who developed resistance to cephalosporin over the course of therapy. She was successfully treated after intravenous Ertapenem antibiotics.
