Abstract

Enteric fever is one of the commonest causes of fever in our country. In majority of the cases, the diagnosis and treatment are based on suggestive clinical features alone, without confirmatory laboratory tests. We studied the clinical and laboratory features, sensitivity pattern of isolates and disease outcome in culture-proven cases of enteric fever in adult patients, with a view to highlight those features which would help general practioners in the diagnosis and empiric treatment of enteric fever in the community.
