• Salmonellosis rarely causes osteomyelitis in previously healthy children. A 15-year-old girl was found to have vertebral osteomyelitis due to Salmonella cerro, the first-reported case to the best of our knowledge. Standard treatment with ampicillin and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole failed to cure the infection. She recovered after a course of moxalactam therapy and surgery.
