Abstract

Salmonella usually produces enteric fever and gastroenteritis. However, the infection may spread through the blood stream and present as local infection at any site including the bone, joints, and central nervous system. The rate of osteomyelitis and septic arthritis secondary to Salmonella are rare conditions. Our case represents a patient with hip septic arthritis and osteomyelitis of the pelvis with unusual salmonella serotype Montevideo, group C1.
