TYPHOID – A QUICK GUIDE
Typhoid fever, commonly known as
Typhoid is a climactic malady which starts with a mild fever and ranges up to
high fever over several days. The causal agent behind Typhoid is a bacteria
named “Salmonella Typhi” or “Salmonella Paratyphi” causing illness

human body. If untreated, Typhoid fever may accentuate to a condition of
obtundation, intestinal haemorrhage, delirium, bowel perforation and in severe
conditions can lead to the death of the patient. Moreover, the general factors
leading to the spread of Typhoid are eating/drinking contaminated food and
water. Others include foul sanitation utilities, hygiene disorders among
illiterates and poor folks etc.

bacteria Salmonella typhi or Pratyphi proliferate by the adulteration caused by
an infected person onto the surroundings through fecal matter and excretas.

body pains are prevalent. Moreover, the duration of Typhoid, if devoid of

degree. Along with fever, the first week marks the existence of running nose and
abdominal pain. The second weak represents high fever as against the first week
and Delirium, constipation, Diarrhoea become frequent during this stage. In the
third week, the illness occurs to be threatening by the visible complications
posed such as intestinal perforation, haemorrhage, peyer’s patches,
encephalitis, dehydration, diminishing platelet counts etc. The fourth week
starts with a lowering in the body temperature marking a subsiding fever.
The disease can be treated by the
consumption of antibiotics: azithromycin, flouroquinolones such as ciprofloxacin
or third generation cephalosporins such as ceftriaxone or cefotaxime. However,
the preventive measures are reflected in the usage of clean water for drinking
purposes, proper sanitation facilities and regulation of proper hygiene. Other

vaccine and the injectable Typhoid polysaccharide vaccine. On a scale of
efficiency, these vaccines prove more than 50% worthy and are useful in cases of
persons travelling to areas where probability of this malady is high.
