Non-Typhoidal Salmonella Osteomyelitis in Immunocompetent Children without Hemoglobinopathies: A Case Series and Systematic Review of the Literature.
Additional Document Info
Salmonella osteomyelitis is well-described in children with hemoglobinopathies, particularly infection with Salmonella typhi. To characterize non-typhoidal 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.
