Brief Report

Summary

An adult white male without sickle cell anaemia who developed osteomyelitis due to Salmonella agona is described. This appears to be the first report of osteomylitis due to a normally noninvasive species of Salmonella. Antibiotic therapy controlled the infection and led to clinical and radiological cure.
