Enteric fever is a multisystem disorder caused mainly by Salmonella typhi and Salmonella paratyphi A. It continues to be a major public health problem, especially in developing countries. Unusual presentations of Salmonellosis are rare. We report 3 such cases of young adult males, one of splenic abscess due to Salmonella typhi and one each of liver abscess due to Salmonella typhi and Salmonella paratyphi A. A brief review of the literature pertaining to the cases is also given.
