ENTERIC FEVER

INTRODUCTION
• Enteric fever, also known as typhoid fever.
• Typhoid fever is an acute illness associated with fever
caused by the Salmonella typhi bacteria. It can also
be caused by Salmonella paratyphi, a related
bacterium that usually causes a less severe illness.
• Major cause morbidity and mortality.
• Food water borne disease.
The bacteria are deposited in water or food by a human
carrier and then spread to other people.
CAUSE
BACTERIA
• Cause by Bacteria -Salmonella Typhi.
• Family-Enterobacteriacea.
• Gram negative bacilii.
• Best grows at 37 C.
TRANSMISSION
• faecal-oral route.
• close contact with patients or
carriers.
• contaminated water and food.
• flies and cockroaches.
This map shows which countries are at greatest risk for contracting Typhoid Fever.
• Current estimates from the WHO suggest that the worldwide incidence of TF is
approximately 16 million cases annually with >600,000 deaths!
• From the Kelantan State’s Public Health Department registry, 1394
records of confirmed typhoid fever patients admitted to various
hospitals within the state from year 2004 to 2009 were retrieved
• The distribution of typhoid patients by demographic variables were
 Malay 98.1% (n=1367)
 Females 50.9% (n=709)
 District of Kota Bharu 71.8% (n=1001).
 An important observation here was the predominance of males in
the age groups 5-14 and females in the age group 20-35 and 45-60
 The overall male to female ratio was 1:1.

Is typhoid contagious?
• Typhoid fever is highly contagious. An infected person can pass the
bacteria out of their body in their stools (faeces) or, less commonly,
in their urine.
• Contamination of the water supply can, in turn, taint the food supply.
The bacteria can survive for weeks in water or dried sewage.
How Do People Get Typhoid Fever?
• Work in or travel to area where typhoid fever is endemic
• Work as a clinical microbiologist handling Salmonella typhi
bacteria
• Have close contact with someone who is infected or has
recently been infected with typhoid fever
• Drink water contaminated by sewage that contains S. typhi
How Long Is a Person With Typhoid Fever
Contagious?
• A person with typhoid fever is contagious anywhere from days to
years (if they become a chronic carrier); some researchers
suggest a few individuals may be contagious indefinitely.
• About 3%-5% of people become carriers of the bacteria after the
acute illness.
• Others suffer a very mild illness that goes unrecognized. These
people may become long-term carriers of the bacteria -- even
though they have no symptoms -- and be the source of new
outbreaks of typhoid fever for many years.
THANK
YOU
 With appropriate antibiotic therapy, most patients recover from the disease.
 However, 30% of people who do not receive therapy will die. Annually, in the
United States, there are about 300-400 cases and only one or two deaths
each year.
 Most of those who got sick had failed to receive a vaccination prior to travel.
 Typhoid fever kills hundreds of thousands of people annually each year. Most
deaths occur in developing countries where the disease is common. With
adequate treatment, less than 1% of victims should die.
 There is a concern that multi-antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria are
becoming more common worldwide.
What Is the Prognosis of Typhoid Fever?
PATHOPHYSIOLOGY
( Diarrhoea )
( onset of typhoid fever )
What Are the Symptoms of
Typhoid Fever?
 Incubation period is
typically about 10-14 days
but can be longer, and the
onset may be insidious.
 Symptoms are often non-
specific and clinically non-
distinguishable from other
febrile illnesses. However,
clinical severity varies and
severe cases may lead to
serious complications or
even death.
CLINICAL FEATURES
• Slowly rising (stepladder fashion) of
temperature for 4-5 days
• Abdominal pain & myalgia
• Malaise
• Headache
• Constipation
• Relative bradycardia
• Signs and symptoms of 1st week progress
• Delirium, complications, then coma &
death (if untreated)
Stage 1 (1ST WEEK)
Stage 2 (2ND WEEK)
• Rose spots may appear
on the upper abdomen &
on the back of sparse
• Cough
• Splenomegaly
• Abdominal distension with
tenderness
• Diarrhea
End of 1ST WEEK
End of 2ND WEEK
Slightly raised, rose-red spots, which fade on pressure. It is usually visible
only on white skin
• Febrile become toxic & anorexic
• Significant weight loss
• Typhoid state (Apathy, confusion & psychosis)
• High risk (5-10%) of hemorrhage and perforation may cause death
Stage 3 (3RD WEEK)
Stage 4 (4TH WEEK)
Recovery period
 If the individual survives to the fourth week, the fever, mental state, and
abdominal distension slowly improve over a few days.
 Intestinal and neurologic complications may still occur in surviving untreated
individuals.
 Weight loss and debilitating weakness last months.
 Some survivors become asymptomatic S typhi carriers and have the potential
to transmit the bacteria indefinitely.
Paratyphoid fever
The course tends to be shorter and milder than that of typhoid fever and the
onset is often more abrupt with acute enteritis. The rash may be more abundant
and the intestinal complications less frequent.
Complications
BOWEL
Perforation
Hemorrhage
SEPTICAEMIC FOCI
Bone and joint infection
Meningitis
Cholecystitis
TOXIC PHENOMENA
Myocarditis
Nephritis
CHRONIC CARRIAGE
Persistent Gallbladder Carriage
Diagnosis & Investigation
• Blood culture
• Specific serologic test
Identify Salmonella antibodies / antigens
[ Fluorescent antibody study to look for
substances that are specific to Typhoid bacteria ]
Widal Test and ELISA
• Urine and Stool Culture (2nd & 3rd week)
• Marrow Culture *
- 90% sensitive unless until after 5 days
commencement of antibiotic
• Punch-biopsy samples of rose spots Culture
- 63% sensitive
• Clot culture
*culture may be obtained from CSF, peritoneal fluid,
mesenteric LNs, resected intestine, gallbladder,
pharynx, tonsils, abscess, bone
7-170521101930 (2).pdf
Other non- specific lab studies
• Moderate anemic, increased ESR, thrombocytopenia,
lymphopenia
• Slightly elevated PT and aPTT, decreased fibrinogen level
• Liver transaminases & bilirubin – increased 2x normal
• Mild hyponatremia & hypokalemia
• Serum ALT: LDH > 9:1 = viral hepatitis
< 9:1 = typhoid hepatitis
7-170521101930 (2).pdf
TREATMENT
•Activity – rest is helpful
•Medical care
oAntibiotic
oCorticosterois ( for severe typhoid fever)
oAntipyretics
•Diet - fluid and electrolytes should be monitored.
Soft digestible diet is preferable in absence of
abdominal distension and ileus
•Surgical care – in cases of intestinal perforation
Antibiotic
Chloramphenicol (500mg qid)
Ampicillin ( 750mg qid)
Co-trimoxazole ( 2 tablets/ iv bds)
Fluoroquinolone (Drug of choice) – ciprofloxacin (500mg bds)
3rd generation cephalosporin – ceftriaxone, cefotaxime (alternative)
Azithromycin ( 500mg once daily) alternative when fluoroquinolone
resistant is present
Treatment should be continued for 14 days
Resistance in many
areas of the world,
especially India &
South-east Asia
• Chronic carriers were formerly treated for 4 weeks with ciprofloxacin but
may require an alternative agent and duration, as guided by antimicrobial
sensitivity testing.
• Cholecystectomy may be necessary.
