DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.5915/15-4-12423

Pulmonary Salmonella infections are rarely encountered in the United States these days. We describe a patient who had a left lower lobe pneumonia. Salmonella typhimurium was cultured from sputum and bronchial brushings from the lesion, and agglutinins for Salmonella were positive. The patient responded well to antibiotic therapy.
