Salmonella osteomyelitis is a rare condition that has been associated with patients having hemoglobinopathies or immunosuppression. Healthy patients with no underlying medical history have been known to have Salmonella osteomyelitis develop. Salmonella infection secondary to reptile exposure is an increasing condition in the United States. Several manifestations of salmonellosis have been described in the literature, but no cases of reptile associated bone or joint infections have been reported. The authors present a case of a 7-month-old girl who contracted Salmonella osteomyelitis of her proximal humerus with septic arthritis of the glenohumeral joint secondary to iguana exposure.
