We report a case of Salmonella osteomyelitis of the femoral neck in a healthy child. Such an occurrence in an immunocompetent child is extremely rare and has not yet been reported in the English literature. Salmonella should be considered among the causative agents in acute osteomyelitis. Prompt antibiotic treatment is pivotal for preventing complications and decreasing the disease burden.
