Salmonella infection is endemic in developing countries. Although the commonest manifestation of Salmonella infection is acute gastroenteritis, the infection may spread through the blood stream and the illness can present with focal lesion in almost any organ with or without septicaemia. Isolation of Salmonella species from aberrant sites with a variety of clinical syndromes where they are hardly expected has been reported. We describe here, a case of rarely encountered Salmonella typhi septic arthritis of hip in a 16 years old female. She was treated with ciprofloxacin therapy to which she responded favourably.
