Salmonella species represent uncommon causative agents in focal infections of the head and neck. The case of a 24-year-old diabetic man with a neck abscess caused by Salmonella enteritidis is presented, and the relevant literature is reviewed. Salmonella should be included in the differential diagnosis of head and neck abscesses.
