Abstract

The incidence of Salmonella enteric infections in Gipuzkoa, Spain, was estimated by studying a stable population between 1983 and 2000. Only stool culture confirmed cases were included. The annual mean rate of infection in children under 2 years old was 1121 per 100 000 (CI 95%; 1060-1181). This age group had the highest relative risk (RR), 16.2-fold higher than the RR of those aged over 14 years. Salmonella Enteritidis was the most prevalent serovar (80.4% of all patients), followed by Salmonella Typhimurium (11.7%).
