Nontyphoid salmonella (NTS) serotypes can cause gastroenteritis, bacteriemia, and focal infections. However, these focal infections, including urinary tract infections (UTI), are occasionally observed; in particular, the presence of several predisposing factors, such as immunodeficiency and structural abnormality in the urinary tract, increase the possibility of the occurrence of infection. We present a case of UTI caused by Salmonella enterica serovar Virchow in an elderly and debilitated patient with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Administration of appropriate antibiotic treatment resulted in recovery of the patient’s clinical course.
