Over 95% of cases of typhoidal and non-typhoidal Salmonella infections are foodborne. Focal salmonellosis without bacteremia is rarely reported, especially cases of non-enteric lymphadenitis. We present a rare case of Salmonella typhimurium inguinal lymphadenitis and review major risk factors for focal salmonellosis and appropriate treatments.
