Salmonellosis is an infection with Salmonella bacteria.
Most people infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 6 to 72 hours after infection.
In most cases, the illness usually lasts 3 to 7 days - most affected people recover without treatment.
However, in some people the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient becomes dangerously dehydrated and must be taken to a hospital.
At the hospital, the patient will receive intravenous fluids to treat dehydration and medications may be given to provide symptomatic relief.
