 en Typhus Fever: An Overlooked Diagnosis
Mazumder, Ramendra N.; Pietroni, Mark A.C.; Mosabbir, Nadira & Salam, M.A.


A case of typhus fever is presented. On admission, the clinical diagnosis was typhoid fever. Forty-eight hours after admission, the presence of subconjunctival haemorrhage, malena, and jaundice raised the possibility of a different aetiology, the two most likely differentials being dengue and typhus. Finally, a co-infection of typhoid and typhus was discovered. This uncommon clinical scenario should be taken into account in the management of patients with high fever on admission being treated as a case of typhoid fever.
