Haemophilus influenzae is an uncommon but important cause of lobar pneumonia, specifically in patients whose host defence mechanisms are impaired by unrecognized underlying diseases. A case of H. influenzae lobar pneumonia in a patient with underlying multiple myeloma is presented. The clinical features, treatment and procedures which aid in making the diagnosis are briefly discussed.
