Salmonella typhi developed resistance to ampicillin, chloramphenicol, streptomycin and tetracycline after passing through the disinfectants. The variants with altered antibiogram also showed changes in phase lytic patterns. The typables (K1, E1 and O) became nontypable after contact mostly with 4.8% chloroxylenol, and very few by formalin, chlorhexidine + cetrimide, 2% glutaraldehyde and tincture iodine. Some of the variants became susceptible to more number of phages.
