Abstract

Infections due to nontyphoidal salmonellae are common, and their incidence has been increasing in the last few years. In this case report, we document the unusual finding of a gluteal abscess caused by Salmonella typhimurium in the absence of detectable bacteremia. Fluoroquinolones remain an important treatment option for salmonellosis, and to avoid potential treatment failures, we underscore the importance of routine screening for nalidixic acid susceptibility with all extraintestinal Salmonella isolates. To our knowledge, this is the first published case of S typhimurium gluteal abscess in the absence of bacteremia and risk factors for salmonellosis.
