Salmonella paratyphi A is a gram negative bacillus causing enteric fever. Although it can cause other systemic pathologies, localised infections in the form of abscess are rare. In literature hepatic, splenic, thyroid, renal, ovarian, psoas abscesses have been reported to be caused by Salmonella paratyphi. Iliopsoas abscesses mentioned in literature were associated with osteomyelitis, septic arthritis or other local pathologies. No case of Primary Iliopsoas Abscess (IPA) caused by Salmonella paratyphi A is mentioned in literature. We present a case of primary iliopsoas abscess, which was caused by Salmonella paratyphi A. Abscess was drained and antibiotics were started according to sensitivity report with complete recovery.
