Abstract

Multiple clinical factors at presentation are associated with subsequent typhoid fever relapse.  These factors may be postulated to be associated with subsequent relapse due to alterations in the reticuloendothelial system organism load.  These data will be valuable in developing algorithms for clinical follow-up in children infected with MDR enteric fever.
