Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Typhoid fever occurs both in epidemic and endemic forms and is a public health problem in developing countries. Typhoid fever is rare under 2 years of age. The clinical profile of typhoid fever in an infant is variable and non-specific. The absence of specific symptoms or signs makes the clinical diagnosis of typhoid fever difficult. The problem in diagnosing typhoid fever in a young infant is highlighted with a brief literature review on the subject. A rare case of typhoid fever in an 8 month old infant is reported.
