The incidence of nontyphoidal Salmonella (NTS) infection is increasing worldwide. It has been well documented that immunosuppressed patients are vulnerable to severe and invasive NTS infection. T-cell immunodeficiency is commonly observed in cancer patients, and cell-mediated immunity is essential in clearing NTS infection and prevention. In this study, we retrospectively reviewed 10 cases at our institution during a 2-year period.
