Abstract

Sacroiliitis caused by Salmonella typhi is an unusual occurrence. Mycobacterium tuberculosis is the usual culprit in our country. We report this case of a 17-year-old young boy who presented with high-grade fever and hip pain. Imaging revealed sacroiliitis and culture grew Salmonella typhi. The patient was treated with parenteral antibiotics and later continued on oral antibiotics.

Keywords: Antibiotics, Sacroiliitis, Salmonella typhi.
