Eight four (84) strains of Salmonella typhi were isolated from blood and stool culture of patients in S.S.K.M. Hospital, Calcutta. All the strains isolated showed multidrug resistance including chlormphenicol with MIC ranging from 100 mcg/ml to 1000 mcg/ml and they were also shown to carry R factors to multiple antibiotics like chlormphenicol, streptomycin, tetracycline, ampicillin and septran.
