Salmonella is one of the major foodborne pathogens worldwide. Domestic, wild animals and a variety of food matrices can transmit Salmonella spp. to humans. Here, we report the top 10 Salmonella serovars isolated from human sources between 2011 and 2020 and received in the National Reference Laboratory for Enteric Diseases. Serotyping was performed according to the Kauffman-White scheme. Three thousand one hundred and thirteen isolates related to human cases belonging to 61 serogroups were received in the NRL between 2011 and 2020. The identification of circulating serotypes is the first step to understanding the epidemiology, and then, with this information, takes actions to mitigate and control this pathogen
