Typhoid fever is a disease caused by Salmonella enterica serotypes paratyphii A, B, C, and Salmonella enterica serotype typhii, especially in humans. There are no non-human vectors for Typhoidal Salmonella. In over 50 percent of healthy volunteers, and inoculum as small as 100,000 typhus species causes infection. Usually, typhoid fever is a short-term febrile disease that needs a median hospitalization time of 6 days. It has few long-term sequelae and a 0.2 percent mortality risk when treated. Untreated typhoid fever is a lethal disease that persists for many weeks, often affecting the central nervous system, with long-term morbidity. Isolated extreme headaches that can be mimic meningitis, acute lobar pneumonia, isolated arthralgia, severe jaundice, urinary symptoms fever alone are the common symptoms of typhoid. A strain of S that is multi-drug resistant (MDR) to Chloramphenicol, ampicillin, and co-trimoxazole typhoids is often used in a patient admitted to hospital in Asia in the late 1980s, and later in Africa. Now in recent advancements, Azithromicyn is used as the first-line oral treatment for typhoid fever.
