Non-typhoidal salmonella bacteremia may result in extra gastrointestinal localization of infection. Aortitis due to non-typhoidal salmonella was reported to be the cause of 38-42.5% of all infected abdominal aortitis. Underlying atherosclersis is a frequent site for salmonella aortitis. We describe here a case of possible salmonella aortitis in a renal transplant patient.
