Abstract:

We report a typhoid fever case with a Salmonella enterica serovar Typhi isolate showing extended spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) production in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Whole genome sequencing revealed that the strain carried a plasmid-mediated CTX-M-15 ESBL gene and did not belong to the dominant H58 Salmonella Typhi clade.
