Spondylodiscitis due to typhoidal Salmonella presents a therapeutic challenge for clinicians. Factors that complicate treatment include drug-resistant strains, poor antibiotic bone penetration, potential for neurological compromise and lack of established protocols and guidelines. We discuss a 57-year-old man with Salmonella paratyphi A spondylodiscitis involving lower thoracic vertebrae and discuss various aspects of management.
