During the 12 month period from June 2010 to May 2011, at our Pediatric Department we treated 48 children with Campylobacter enterocolitis and 23 with Salmonella enterocolitis. Campylobacter infections were seen throughout the year in all ages, whereas Salmonella infections were more common in summer and in younger age groups. Vomiting, bloody stools, dehydration, and admission to hospital were more common with Salmonella enterocolitis. Of the isolated Campylobacter species, 17% were resistant to fosfomycin, and 35% each to norfloxacin and levofloxacin. Of the isolated Salmonella species, 4% were resistant to ampicillin/sulbactam, and 9% each to ampicillin and minocycline.
