We describe MRI findings in a fatal case of culture proven Salmonella typhi-associated encephalopathy. MRI findings included symmetrical diffuse abnormal signal in centrum semiovale, periventricular and deep white matter, splenium of corpus callosum and cerebellar deep white matter with central area of restricted diffusion. There was no contrast enhancement, significant edema or mass effect. Previous literature is also reviewed for imaging findings in Salmonella associated encephalopathy.
