Typhoid Fever is potentially a fatal illness predominantly caused due to regular intake or utilization of contaminated water at homes. Symptoms remain mild during the first thirty days but reach to severity once the disease progresses. Surveillance report stated that females are more prone to Typhoid by 52.62% as compared to males which is 47.38%.
Causes of Typhoid Fever
Bacterial species known as Salmonella Typhi causes Typhoid Fever. The bacteria get transmitted into the body through drinking contaminated water in most of the cases. Even if a person drinks water and eats food contaminated with fecal wastes, he is likely to get typhoid bacteria in feces due to infection.
Once bacteria get entry into the body of the victim by a passage known as the digestive tract, it penetrates the walls of the intestine and engulfs by macrophages (white blood cells). Afterward, it spreads into different parts of the body and multiplies like in liver and spleen. Once it grows in numbers, it enters into the bloodstream from where symptoms appear. Everyone doesn’t get critically ill with this Fever. Patients with mild Fever can be treated by overlooking long term disease carriers.
Symptoms associated with Typhoid Fever:
- Mild Fever
- High Fever with 104-degree Temperature
- Red-colored spots on skin
Typhoid progresses slowly within three weeks. During the first week, cough, headache, and Fever appear, which sometimes accompanies with abdominal pain and nose bleeding. The Temperature reaches 104 degrees in the second week. The third stage is considered dangerous for patients.
Laboratory Investigations reflect complete blood count. During the first week, there will be a reduction in the number of white blood cells (eosinophils) and (leucopenia).
Widal test is performed, which reflects negative results during the first week while positive during 2nd week. LFT( Lung Function Test ): To know the lung capacity.
