Ptosis, ataxia, and dysarthria presenting together are very rare neurological complications of enteric fever. We report a case of a 3-year-old boy with blood culture-proven enteric septicemia who developed these very rare neurological complications of enteric fever. After starting a course of intravenous antibiotics and steroids, he became afebrile and neurological symptoms abated with no residual effects after 4 weeks. This report is a further addition to all the published neuropsychiatric complications of enteric fever so far.
