Abstract

A 69-year-old male was admitted to our hospital on Jan. 10, 1995 complaining of bloody sputum, left back pain and fever of 39°C. He had a history of pulmonary tuberculosis 45 years ago. His chest X-ray and CT showed the presence of air-fluid level in the left pleural cavity with thickening and calcification of the pleura. Salmonella Enteritidis was isolated from the sputum, bronchoalveolar lavage fluid and stool. He was diagnosed as suffering from Salmonella-empyema with an internal fistula. Based on the in vitro sensitivity test, sulfamethoxazole/trimethoprim was started. However, the efficacy of the antimicrobia was not sufficient. He then underwent left pleuropneumonectomy. Salmonella was cultured also from the specimen obtained at the operation. His course after operation was uneventful.<BR>Thus, although Salmonella Enteritidis is known as a common pathogen of food poisoning, it can cause empyema, especially in a case with an impaired host defence system.
