Nontyphoidal Salmonella Osteomyelitis in Immunocompetent Children Without Hemoglobinopathies: A Case Series and Systematic Review of the Literature
Salmonella osteomyelitis is well-described in children with hemoglobinopathies, particularly infection with Salmonella typhi. To characterize nontyphoidal osteomyelitis in otherwise healthy children without hemoglobinopathies, we performed a retrospective review of children discharged from our institution with this condition, supplemented with a systematic literature review. Among the 46 subjects identified, common risk factors for Salmonella infection were frequently absent and complications were common.
