Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Two cases of typhoid hepatitis are being reported. Both the patients presented with jaundice, high fever, toxaemia, abdominal distension, diarrhoea, coating of tongue and hepatomegaly. Significant Widal titres were observed and LFT were grossly altered in both. Blood culture yielded Salmonella typhi in each case. Both the cases were treated with chloramphenicol and made uneventful recovery.
