7) Salmonella osteomyelitis is well known to occur given preexisting sickle cell disease.
Salmonella osteomyelitis can be divided into two broad categories: typhoid osteomyelitis (Salmonella Typhi and paratyphi) and non-typhoid osteomyelitis.
Individuals with hemoglobinopathy and especially sickle cell anemia, chronic liver disease and diabetes and individuals who have immunosupression because of malignancy have a higher predisposition to Salmonella osteomyelitis.
