The case of enteric fever and bowel perforation caused by nontyphoidal Salmonella spp. is extremely rare. We report a case of a 28-year-old man who suffered from enteric fever with complicated a small bowel perforation, which is a known complication of S. typhi and S. paratyphi infections. The culprit later proved to be nontyphoidal group D Salmonella spp. in our case.
