Past traumatic chronic subdural haematoma infected by Salmonella typhi is reported in a 34 years old lady. The isolate was resistant to chloramphenicol, ampicillin and co-trimoxazole. Treatment involved subdural drainage and course of ofloxacin. The patient ultimately recovered. Only eight such cases of Salmonella infected subdural haematoma have been reported in the world literature. The mode of infection is presumed to have been haematogenous.
