Also known as malena or hematêmese, the melena is a symptom of the occurrence of some kind of internal bleeding, especially in the digestive this case, the stools feature a aspect doughy dark-colored and smell foul.

The person who has this symptom should seek urgent medical help, because it can be a sign of a serious illness. Introduction. Typhoid fever is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality across the d is caused by a bacterium of the genus ella infection in humans can be categorised into two broad types, that caused by low virulence serotypes of Salmonella enterica which cause food poisoning, and that caused by the high virulence serotypes Salmonella enterica.

In the third week of typhoid fever, a number of complications can occur: Intestinal haemorrhage due to bleeding in congested Peyer's patches occurs; this can be very serious, but is usually not fatal. Intestinal perforation in the distal ileum is a very serious complication and is frequently fatal.

Typhoid fever and paratyphoid fever are life-threatening illnesses caused by Salmonella serotype Typhi and Salmonella serotype Paratyphi, respectively.

Most people in the United States with typhoid fever or paratyphoid fever become infected while traveling abroad.

Typhoid fever is an acute infectious illness associated with fever that is most often caused by the Salmonella typhi ella paratyphi, a related bacterium that usually leads to a less severe illness, can also cause typhoid feces of human carriers of the bacteria may contaminate water or food, and the illness then spreads to other people in the area.

Typhoid fever, also known as enteric fever, is an acute systemic infectious disease that has an estimated global incidence of 12–22 million cases annually, resulting in – deaths [].The majority of the disease burden is focused in low- and middle-income settings, mainly Asia and sub-Saharan Africa [1, 4, 5].Typhoid fever is caused by infection with Salmonella enterica serovar.

Typhoid fever is an acute and often life-threatening systemic febrile illness caused by a bacterium Salmonella enterica serovar typhi. 1 It is transmitted by fecal-oral route through food and. Sometimes patients have diarrhea, constipation, or a rash on their trunk.

Severe symptoms may appear 2 to 3 weeks after onset of the illness and may include intestinal hemorrhage or perforation. Some people who recover from Typhoid Fever and Paratyphoid Fever continue to be carriers of the bacteria and can potentially infect others. Typhoid fever, acute infectious disease caused by the bacterium Salmonella enterica serovar Typhi.

The bacterium usually enters the body via ingestion of contaminated food or water. Most major epidemics have been linked to contaminated public water supplies.

Relapse was common, and complications such as intestinal hemorrhage or perforation were more likely to occur later in the course of illness.

If intestinal hemorrhage occurred, the child was returned to full bed rest, and the nurse applied ice to the abdomen, elevated the foot of the bed, and administered morphine hypodermically.

The main reservoir for S. typhi is the human intestinal tract, although people with typhoid fever also carry the bacteria in their bloodstream. In addition, a small number of carriers recover from typhoid fever but continue to carry the bacteria. Both ill people and. The incubation differs for typhoid and paratyphoid fever: The incubation period for typhoid fever is usually 8–14 days, but this depends on the infective dose and can vary from 3 days to 1 month.

The incubation period for paratyphoid fever is usually 1–10 days. Public health significance and occurrence of typhoid and paratyphoid Typhoid and.

Abstract. Background: Typhoid fever caused by the Salmonella typhi is a communicable disease and still a major health concern in developing countries. This study was carried to access the disease burden in Gujrat, Pakistan and associated risk factors.

Methodology: Data was collected from confirmed typhoid patients (n) visiting different public and private sector hospitals through structured.

The authors analyse the incidence of complications in Indian patients suffering from typhoid fever. Circulatory failure was the commonest complication, occurring in % of patients; intestinal haemorrhage occurred in % and perforation in %. Circulatory failure was the cause of death in 13 of 19 fatal cases (%).

Intestinal haemorrhage and perforation were responsible for %. The first Incidence of MDR typhoid was observed in India in which of the following years. Intestinal perforation and bleeding. Bleeding and high fever. High fever. Transmission occurs through the fecal-oral route, and humans are the only known reservoir.

Complications of typhoid fever include intestinal hemorrhage, pericarditis, visceral abscesses, and septicemia. Treatment is with fluoroquinolones. Prevention of typhoid fever is available through vaccination, hand hygiene, and safe food and water practices.

The incidence of typhoid intestinal perforation had previously been reported as an indication of endemicity of typhoid fever in any locality [27, 29–34]. In most parts of the world, perforation rate ranges from % to % of enteric fever cases [8, 35], but in West Africa, higher rates of 10%% have been reported [28, 29, 31, 36].Typhoid fever is an acute generalized infection of the reticuloendothelial system, intestinal lymphoid tissue, and gallbladder caused by Salmonella enterica serovar Typhi (S.

Typhi).The incidence of typhoid fever in June (39%) was significantly higher than the incidence rate in other months of the year (p=). Typhoid fever has a considerable challenge to public health.
