Infections are a common cause of morbidity and mortality in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients. The primary disease process and complications of drug management may contribute to this increased susceptibility. A high incidence of salmonella infections have been reported in SLE patients. We report an unusual case of a SLE patient who developed recurrent salmonella sepsis. The first episode with salmonella typhimurium was followed a few months later by an episode of salmonella enteritides sepsis.
