Five hundred & twenty two strains of Salmonellae were isolated from cases of diarrhoea, septicemia and other sources during the years 1979-1983. Of the 522 strains, 46 were found sensitive to all the drugs tested. Prevalent antibiotic resistance pattern in Salmonellae were ACKST (18.6%), AKST (13.6%), ACKT (13.4%), CKT (10.2%) and ACGKT (9.4%). Enterotoxin production was demonstrated by gut ileal loop as well as rabbit’s skin permeability assay in 9.4% of the total strains. The most common toxigenic isolates were S. typhimurium (5.2%) and S. oranienburg (2.3%). Other serotypes viz; S. berta, S. chester, S. bareilly, S. enteritidis, S. Indiana, S. richmond and S. stanley were also among the enterotoxigenic strains. Both, resistant as well as sensitive strains of the various serotypes of Salmonella produced enterotoxin.
