We report an outbreak of Salmonella meningitis in a nursery unit due to serotype Worthington. The organism was isolated from blood and CSF samples of five babies. The isolates were found to be resistant to commonly used antibiotics such as ampicillin, cefotaxime, cefiriaxone and amikacin but were sensitive to ciprofloxacin. Serotype Worthington appears to be an emerging pathogen in neonatal units.
