Abstract:

Guinea pigs were infected with Salmonella typhi by injecting the bacterial culture into the exposed gallbladder. Some of the animals became typhoid bacteria excretors still on the 104th and 114th day, respectively, S. typhi were demonstrable in fecal and urine mixtures. During the histological examination of the organs, small-cell infiltrates were noted in the gallbladders and kidneys, possibly suggesting latent chronical infection. Demonstration beyond doubt of intracellularly located S. typhi in the tissues of the gallbladders, the latter being very often to some extent cirrhotic, was not successful by means of staining.
