Abstract

Sickle cell disease is a rare condition in italian patients and even rarer are its complications, in particular Salmonella osteomyelitis. We describe a case of a Ghanaian child with sickle cell disease who developed osteomyelitis due to Salmonella panama, treated successfully with surgical debridement, followed by a prolonged period of specific antibiotic therapy.
