  Typhoid fever, also known as enteric fever, is a potentially fatal multisystemic illness caused primarily by Salmonella enterica, subspecies enterica serovar typhi and, to a lesser extent, related serovars paratyphi A, B, and C. The protean manifestations of typhoid fever make this disease a true diagnostic challenge. Typhus was also a significant killer during the US Civil War, although typhoid fever was the more prevalent cause of US Civil War "camp fever". Typhoid fever, caused by the bacterium Salmonella typhii (not to be confused with Salmonella enterica, the cause of salmonella food poisoning), is a completely different disease from typhus.

Atypical clinical presentations like prolonged hepatitis, cholestatic hepatitis and relapsing hepatitis though rare are known to occur with hepatitis A infection [8].Typhoid fever, similar to. The clinical features of typhoid fever with hepatic involvement include: fever %, hepatomegaly %, clinical jaundice %, rising in ALT %, AST %, Alkaline phosphatase % and.

In the third week of typhoid fever, a number of complications can occur: Intestinal haemorrhage due to bleeding in congested Peyer's patches occurs; this can be very serious, but is usually not fatal. Intestinal perforation in the distal ileum is a very serious complication and is frequently fatal.

William Osler initially reported hepatic involvement of typhoid fever in H Hepatomegaly and moderate elevation of transaminase levels are the common findings that occur in 21–60% of cases[6,7] of typhoid fever.

However, severe hepatic derangement simulating acute viral hepatitis is. The spectrum of renal complication in typhoid fever includes mild to severe glomerular involvement 5., 9., and, less commonly, acute tubular necrosis caused by massive intravascular hemolysis (11) or full blown, disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) with hemolytic uremic syndrome.

The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) provides advice and guidance to the Director of the CDC regarding use of vaccines and related agents for control of vaccine-preventable diseases in the civilian population of the United States. Recommendations made by the ACIP are reviewed by the CDC Director and, if adopted, are published as official CDC/HHS recommendations in the.

Typhoid fever is often associated with abnormal liver biochemical tests, but severe hepatic involvement with a clinical feature of acute hepatitis is a rare complication. There have been more than cases of salmonella hepatitis reported from both developed and developing countries.

Background: While typhoid fever is common in our environment, presentation with jaundice is unusual. The aim of this study has been to determine the clinical and laboratory features that allow early diagnosis of typhoid fever in patients that present with jaundice and differentiate it from other common causes of fever and jaundice in the tropics.

The common complications of typhoid fever include relapse, perforation and hemorrhage from bowel ulcerations. Extreme hepatic dysfunction with hepatic encephalopathy is a rare coexisting complication in salmonella hepatitis. Unusual causes of fulminant hepatic failure have been lymphoma, metastatic liver tumors, bacterial endotoxins such as Bacillus cereus, 10 and bacterial hepatitis such as typhoid fever due to S typhi.6 Bacterial infections such as Escherichia coli may.

Symptoms of typhoid fever and paratyphoid fever include stomach pains, headache, or loss of appetite. If you have been treated take all of your prescribed antibiotics, wash your hands, and have doctor perform stool cultures. About 1 in 10 people with typhoid or paratyphoid fever infections have complications.

These can occur at any time while you have the infection, even if you have a mild infection. The two most common complications are bleeding from the bowel and rupture (perforation) of the bowel. These occur in about 2 in cases. Abstract. To find the incidence, markers and nature of complications of typhoid fever, we studied children with cultures positive for Salmonella typhi in a cross‐sectional study, prospectively, over a period of almost 5 years.

All isolates were sensitive to commonly used antibiotics. Typhoid fever is a systemic infection caused by Salmonellaenterica serotype Typhi (S. Typhi). Inthe incidence in Spain was 82 cases, of which 17 were in Catalonia ( cases perinhabitants).

Prognosis depends on the speed of diagnosis and treatment. If hepatitis is excluded from the complications, the rate of complications in bacteriologically confirmed cases of typhoid fever drops to 11 per cent. These complications were not related to: the age or sex of patients, duration of illness before admission, use of antibiotics before admission, nutritional status, level of 'O' or 'H' titre.

Severe or complicated typhoid fever could include for example, gastrointestinal complications (such as typhoid-related intestinal perforation, peritonitis, intestinal hemorrhage, hepatitis), neurologic complications (such as typhoid encephalopathy, including altered consciousness, delirium, confusion), or bacteremia with sepsis or shock.

In mixed infection, serum bilirubin was normal in %, serum transaminases were higher and alkaline phosphatase was normal among %.

Patients with typhoid fever, HCV and schistosomiasis (%) showed significant increase of liver function as compared with each of pure HCV or HCV and schistosomasis.

Results were discussed. Typhoid fever is a bacterial disease caused by Salmonella typhi. While rare in industrialized countries, typhoid fever is a significant threat in some low-income countries.

Symptoms of typhoid fever range from mild to serious and usually develop one to three weeks after exposure to the bacteria.Most patients who present to hospitals with typhoid fever are children or young adults from 5 to 25 years of age.

On examination, he looked ill, but was conscious and febrile with icteric sclera.
