Epidemiologically unrelated non-typhoid Salmonella isolates from humans (n = 56) and animal origin (n = 241, from faeces, carcasses and meat) in Vietnam were investigated. Salmonella Typhimurium, S. Anatum, S. Weltevreden, S. Emek, and S. Rissen were the most prevalent serovars. S. Typhimurium phage type 90 was predominant among S. Typhimurium isolates. The serotype and phage type distribution of the Salmonella isolates was different from that in Europe and America. Many sero- and phage types found in humans were also found in cattle, pigs, and poultry suggesting that food producing animals are an important source of human non-typhoid Salmonella infection in Vietnam.
