Abstract

Salmonella enteritica serovar Senftenberg is a rare pathogen in osteomyelitis, and is not usually encountered in healthy individuals. Here we report radiological and microbiological findings of a case of Brodie’s abscess caused by S. enteritica serovar Senftenberg in the left tibia of an otherwise healthy child.
