Osteoarticular infections caused by Non-typhi Salmonella are exceptionally encountered. We report a case of a bacteriologically documented hip infection associated with a psoas abscess due to Non-typhi Salmonella. A 64-year-old immunocompetent male was admitted in our department for pain and motion range limitation in the right hip with fever. Non-typhi Salmonella was recovered in joint fluid obtained by needle aspiration. Antimicrobial chemotherapy combined with surgical intervention was necessary for eradication of the infection. Physicians should be aware of this rare manifestation of Non-typhi Salmonella infections in non-debilitated patients.
