We document microbiological persistence of the same Salmonella typhimurium strain in an AIDS patient during 7 months of clinical observation despite prolonged quinolone therapy. Persistence was demonstrated by phage types that closely resembled one another, similar antibiotic resistance patterns, conserved restriction fragment length polymorphism of… CONTINUE READING
