Gram-negative bacteria most often affect the lung in an acute, suppurative process; however, these organisms may also produce chronic pneumonia. Acinetobacter calcoaceticus has not been reported previously as a cause of chronic pneumonia. We present a patient with fatal, chronic community-acquired Acinetobacter pneumonia with chest wall invasion at autopsy.
