In sub-Saharan Africa, an invasive form of nontyphoidal Salmonella (iNTS) belonging to sequence type (ST)313 has emerged as a major public health concern causing widespread bacteremia and mortality in children with malaria and adults with HIV. Clinically, ST313 pathovars are characterized by the absence of gastroenteritis, which is commonly found in “classical” nontyphoidal Salmonella (NTS), along with multidrug resistance, pseudogene formation, and chromosome degradation.
