Salmonella

Outbreak Information

Información sobre el brote de Salmonella

Since our last update on April 5, 2012, 5 new cases of Salmonella Bareilly infection matching the outbreak strain had been reported among Wisconsin residents bringing the total cases in Wisconsin to 14 since February. Two of these new cases are among Milwaukee county residents, bringing the county’s total to 6 cases. The City of Milwaukee case count remains at one case.

 


Symptoms and Treatment

Most persons infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 12–72 hours after infection. Infection is usually diagnosed by culture of a stool sample. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days. Although most people recover without treatment, severe infections may occur. Infants, elderly persons, and those with impaired immune systems are more likely than others to develop severe illness. When severe infection occurs, Salmonella may spread from the intestines to the bloodstream and then to other body sites and can cause death unless the person is treated promptly with antibiotics.
