Typhoid and paratyphoid fever, collectively termed ‘enteric fever’, are similar severe febrile systemic illnesses caused by infection with the invasive Gram negative bacterium Salmonella enterica, subspecies Enterica serovar Typhi (S. typhi) and Enterica serovar Paratyphi A or B respectively. Unlike other salmonella species these infect only humans.1–4 Globally, S. typhi is the commonest. Typhoid fever, the generalized infection of the reticuloendothelial system (spleen, liver, and bone marrow), gut-associated lymphoid tissue, and gall bladder caused by the highly human host restricted pathogen Salmonella enterica serovar Typhi (), is the quintessential infectious disease associated with inadequate sanitation and lack of protected drinking by: 4.

The incidence of typhoid fever in Fiji is among the highest in the world. The disease is difficult to diagnose. Untreated typhoid fever has a high mortality. It is estimated that for every case treated for typhoid fever in Fiji, there are 7 cases that remain undetected in the community.   The case-fatality rate of typhoid fever is 10%, but it can be reduced to 1% with appropriate antibiotic treatment. 4. Infections with other Salmonella bacteria also occur. Paratyphoid fever is also a systemic disease, caused by Salmonella paratyphi. Its presenting symptoms are similar to those of typhoid fever, but they are milder and the case Cited by:

TYPHOID FEVER (Salmonella Typhi) What is TYPHOID FEVER? Typhoid fever is an infection of the intestinal tract and occasionally the bloodstream. It is caused by the bacteria, Salmonella Typhi. It is a rare disease with approximately cases occurring annually in the United States. Most cases are acquired during travel to underdeveloped countries. Travelers to South and Southeast Asia are at high risk of acquiring multidrug-resistant Enterobacteriaceae. Enteric fever (typhoid or paratyphoid fever), has become increasingly resistant to fluoroquinolones and third-generation cephalosporins and azithromycin in some regions (see Chapter 4, Typhoid & Paratyphoid Fever).

The major symptoms of this disease are characterized by high fever, loss of appetite and diarrhoea. Enteric fever remains a tropical disease of public health significance in Africa, due to its high endemicity and transmission rates, more in sub-Saharan Africa with million cases of typhoid.

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. persons may not show any symptoms of typhoid fever, but can shed the S. typhi bacteria in their feces for many years. These persons are called typhoid fever "carriers.” S. typhi is only found in humans. What are the signs and symptoms of typhoid fever.
