In order to assess antimicrobial resistance in nontyphoid human Salmonella in Belgium, the six most important serovars, representing together more than 90% of laboratory confirmed cases, were randomly sampled. From June 2000 until December 2002, a total of 1756 isolates were screened for their antimicrobial resistance profile by the disc diffusion method. S. Hadar strains showed the highest level of antimicrobial resistance. Simultaneous resistance to ampicillin, nalidixic acid, tetracycline and streptomycin was observed in 81.5, 58 and 76.1% of these isolates in 2000, 2001 and 2002, respec…
