Abstract

Non-typhoidal salmonellosis is rarely encountered in immunodeficient individuals, including HIV/AIDS, where pleural effusion is an unlikely manifestation as well. Tuberculosis and Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia are the two leading causes of pleural effusion, which are mainly non-haemorrhagic. We report a rare case of haemorrhagic pleural effusion in an HIV-positive patient with Salmonella typhimurium as the only opportunistic infection. It was diagnosed timely and treated successfully with institution of appropriate antibiotics. S. typhimurium is a rare opportunistic infection to cause haemorrhagic pleural effusion in HIV positive patients with decreased CD4+ count.
