Abstract

Nontyphoidal Salmonella species cause a wide spectrum of infections ranging from gastroenteritis and different focal infections to bacteremia. Nevertheless, out of all extraintestinal manifestations, lymphadenitis is rarely described in the literature, and no cases of associated lymph node abscess in lymphoma patients were described, to our knowledge, in the Middle East. Hence, we are reporting a case of cervical lymph node abscess caused by nontyphoidal Salmonella in a non-Hodgkin's lymphoma patient.
