Abstract

The interpretation of Widal test and Malaria card test, when diagnosing concurrent malaria and typhoid fever, must therefore be done with a lot of caution. Negative or positive Widal agglutination test is neither definitive nor completely informative. Similarly erroneous interpretation of Malaria card test (especially Antibody detection card test) result may lead to prolonged treatment and economic burden on patient.
