Abstract

Salmonella osteomyelitis is a rare entity, typically associated with hemoglobinopathies or other underlying disorders. We report a case of Salmonella osteomyelitis of the right knee in an otherwise healthy 1-year-old boy. He received 8 weeks (2 weeks intravenous and 6 weeks oral) of antibiotic treatment, with full recovery.
