Hi.... Rose spots describe the rash that occurs in up to 30% of people infected with Salmonella typhi. Characteristically, rose spots are seen in untreated typhoid fever. Rose spots usually occur between the second and fourth week of illness...... Rose spots are thought to be bacterial emboli to the skin, i.e. clumps of bacteria have spread through the bloodstream. Salmonella can be cultured from rose spots.Emboli may rarely be observed in skin biopsies.
