 en An adolescent with multi-organ involvement from typhoid fever
Kumwenda, Mercy & Iroh Tam, Pui-Ying

Abstract

Typhoid fever is usually a mild clinical disease, but it can have potentially serious complications. Here, we describe a case of an adolescent male who presented with severe illness and multi-organ involvement from typhoid fever. He required follow-up after discharge but eventually recovered. Clinicians should be aware of the spectrum of clinical manifestations as early recognition will improve monitoring and management of typhoid disease.
