Septic arthritis is characterized by joint inflammation after a direct invasion of joint space by an infectious agent, and it is most frequently caused by bacteria. Salmonella septic arthritis is very rare in immunocompetent children, occurring almost exclusively in patients with a predisposing disease.
The authors aim to alert to this condition by describing their experience in approaching an uncommon case of non-typhoidal Salmonella septic arthritis in an immunocompetent child, demonstrating its severity and increased risk of complications, requiring multiple therapeutic interventions and modification of antibiotic regimens.

Key words: Septic arthritis, Salmonella, immunocompetent, elbow
