Typhoid

Typhoid fever, often referred to as “enteric fever,” is an infection caused predominantly by Salmonella enterica subspecies. Typhoid fever, if left untreated, can lead to delirium, obtundation, intestinal hemorrhage, bowel perforation, and death. Long-term or permanent neuropsychiatric complications may befall survivors. Typhoid IgG/IgM detection and Widal Titre are used to screen for typhoid infection to aid early treatment.
