Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Typhoid fever is a systemic disease not endemic to South Dakota. We report a case of a young child, living in South Dakota since immigrating with his family as a refugee, who developed typhoid fever. Contact investigation failed to identify a source, suggesting that the infection was acquired abroad. The clinical presentation of typhoid is discussed, and the literature relevant to diagnosis, treatment and prevention is reviewed.
