An interesting case of gastroenteritis due to Salmonella Birkenhead following ingestion of raw venison sashimi is described. A 65-year-old man presented with diarrhea, vomiting, and fever. On exam he was hypotensive, tachycardic, with evidence of severe dehydration following ingestion of raw venison sashimi produced with game meat hunted on the Hawaiian island of Lana'i. He responded rapidly to vigorous volume resuscitation, and stool cultures later were positive for Salmonella Birkenhead. Non-typhoidal Salmonella is the most frequently identified cause of foodborne illness in the United States. Clinicians in the state of Hawai'i should be alert and aware of the potential for the local deer population to be an unusual source of foodborne illness, especially given the prevalence of consumption of raw foods in the local cuisine.
