|Abstract:||The use of mesh in the management of abdominal wall hernias has significantly reduced the incidences of hernia recurrences. The placement of synthetic meshes to reinforce the abdominal wall is not without caveats. Synthetic meshes are associated with a risk of infection. Common causative microorganisms for mesh-related infection range from a diversity of gram positive, gram negative and anaerobic bacteria. However, non-typhoidal Salmonella spp. mesh-related infection remains poorly described in the literature. In this case, we report the management of an immunocompromised patient who developed Salmonella typhimurium mesh-related infection that was complicated by abscess formation.|
