Abstract: Osteomyelitis of the skull is a rare disease. We describe two cases due to Salmonella typhimurium and review 10 previously reported cases of salmonella osteomyelitis of the skull. This infection is frequently complicated by extradural abscess, which may be asymptomatic. Diagnostic imaging by means of computed tomographic scanning with contrast or gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging should be performed to detect this complication. A good outcome can be expected with a combination of surgery and antibiotic therapy.
