Meningitis due to Salmonella is a very rare sign of Salmonellosis. A 10-day-old female premature neonate with Salmonella typhimurium meningitis is presented in this report. The clinical features, outcome and antibiotic treatment are discussed. Although it is extremely rare, Salmonella meningitis should be considered in differential diagnosis of neonatal meningitis.
