Salmonella is a large genus of Gram-negative bacilli within the family Enterobacteriaceae. It commonly causes infection involving the intestine as well as extraintestinal organs such as meninges, lungs, urinary tract, bones, and vessels, however, it rarely involves the genitalia. Review of literature shows only a few case reports of bacteriologically proven testicular abscess, most commonly due to nontyphoidal Salmonella. We report a case of a 68-year-old gentleman with testicular abscess due to Salmonella typhi with no systemic signs and symptoms.
