Drug Resistant Typhoid Fever: An emerging Public Health Crisis

Ejaz Khan.

Abstract
Typhoid fever is a very common infection in our settings. It is transmitted by consumption of contaminated food or water especially in regions where poor sanitary facilities exist. Thus, water supplies are subject to fecal contamination leading to enhanced transmission of Salmonella (S) Typhi and Paratyphi, the etiologic agents. Typhoid fever remains a significant public health threat in low and middle income countries, with an estimated 1120 million cases and between 128,000 and 161,000 typhoid-associated deaths each year.1,2

Key words: Typhoid, enteric fever, multi drug resistant salmonella.
