Spine infections are uncommon in paediatrics and are generally caused by Staphylococcus aureus. Salmonella spp. are a rare cause of spine infections, usually affecting children with sickle-cell anaemia. We present a case of group C1 Salmonella diskitis in a previously healty 2-y-old child, and review the relevant literature.
