Bacteriological Diagnosis of Typhoid Fever • A presumptive diagnosis of salmonellosis can often be made within 24 h of the receipt of a specimen, although confirmation may take another day, and formal identification of the serotype takes several more days. A negative report must await the result of enrichment cultures - at least 48 h. Typhoid in Tajikistan – pg. 5 (STUDENT’S VERSION) As a first step in exploring the increase in typhoid fever cases in Taji kistan, SES investigators confirmed the diagnosis of typhoid fever in a sample of patients admitted to one of the Dushanbe hospitals.

Patients with typhoid or paratyphoid fever have bacteremia. Blood culture is the mainstay of diagnosis in typhoid and paratyphoid fever; however, a single culture is positive in only approximately 50% of cases.
Multiple cultures increase the sensitivity and may be required to make the diagnosis. Typhoid fever, also known as enteric fever, is a potentially fatal multisystemic illness caused primarily by Salmonella enterica, subspecies enterica serovar typhi and, to a lesser extent, related serovars paratyphi A, B, and C.
