Non-typhoid Salmonellosis (NTS) is caused by numerous Salmonella species. The organisms of NTS are commonly found in common contaminants of food which includes poultry meat, eggs, milk, vegetables etc. This disease can also be identified as one of the most common food-borne zoonotic infection in some of the developed and developing countries. It was noticed that in Egypt, NTS infections is mainly found in poultry. Several studies were performed to determine the occurrence and multidrug resistance of typhoidal salmonella.
These infections are identified as one of the most common food-borne zoonotic infection in developed and developing countries, but incidence between countries is variable. In Egypt, NTS infections in poultry have increased in the last years. There are excessive uses of antibiotics in zoonotic infections resulting in development of bacterial resistance that can be transmitted to humans by three ways, from direct contact with animals, from the consumption of eggs and meat or through the environment.
