Typhoid fever is a systemic infectious disease caused by Salmonella thypi which is
still widely found in various developing countries which are mainly located in tropical and
subtropical regions.This disease is also an important public health problem because its
distribution is closely related to urbanization, population density, environmental health, poor
water sources and sanitation and the low hygiene standards of the food processing industry
(Simanjuntak, CH, 2009).
Thypoid abdominal is an acute small intestinal infection caused by
germs Salmonella Thypi ( which usually affects the digestive tract with symptoms of fever
that lasts more than 7 days, digestive disorders and impaired consciousness (Ari ef, M. 200 9 ).
Typhoid is disease infections that occur in the intestine smooth caused by
salmonella thypii, disease this could transmitted through germs , mouth or water contaminated
by germs sal monellathypii. ( Azis HA 2006) .
Thypoid abdominalis is an acute infectious disease that usually affects the digestive
tract with symptoms of fever that lasts more than one week, disorders of the digestive tract, and
disturbances of consciousness. (Nursalam . 2005)
Typhoid is an acute infection of the small intestine caused by the bacteria salmonella
thypi and salmonella para thypi A, B, C. Synonyms of this disease are Typhoid and
paratyphoid abdominal (Sud oyo, A 200 9 ). Typhoid is an infectious disease in the small
intestine, typhoid is also called paratyphoid fever, enteric fever, typhus and the abdominal
typhus (Seoparman, 2007).
From some of the above understanding it can be concluded that typhoid fever is an
infectious disease of the small intestine caused by salmonella type A, B and C which can be
transmitted through oral, fecal, contaminated food and drinks.

Salmonella thypi with Another salmonella Gram-
negative bacteria, have flagella, not capsule , no form spore , facultative anaerob . Has
a somatic (O) antigen consisting from oligosaccharides, flagelarantigen (H) t e rdiri from
the protein and envelope antigen (K) which
is composed from plainaccharide . Have macromolecular lipopolysaccharide complex that fo
an outer layer from Wall cell andnamed endotoxin . Salmonella thypi also can obtain the ass
ociated R-plasmid factor with resistance against multiple antibiotics. ( Nanda Nic-Noc,
2013 )

(Nanda Nic-Noc.2013)
According to W idodo , 2007 Supporting the client with typhoid is a laboratory
examination, which consists of:
1. Leukocyte examination
In some literature it is stated that typhoid fever has leukopenia and relative limposistosis
but the fact is that leukopenia is not common. In most cases of typhoid fever, the number of
leukocytes in peripheral blood preparations is at normal limits even sometimes there are
leukocytes even though there are no complications or secondary infections. Therefore
examination of the number of leukocytes is not useful for the diagnosis of typhoid fever.
2. Sgot and Sgot Examination
Sgot and Sgpt in typhoid fever often increase but can return to normal after typhoid healing.
3. Blood culture
If positive blood cultures indicate typhoid fever, but if negative blood cultures do not rule
out typhoid fever. This is because the results of blood cultures depend on several factors:
a. Laboratory inspection techniques
The results of examination of one laboratory are different from other laboratories, this
is due to differences in techniques and culture media used. A good blood collection time
is during a high fever when the bacteremia is taking place.
b. When checking during the course of the disease
Blood culture for salmonella thypi is especially positive in the first week and decreases
in the following weeks. At the time of relapse blood cultures can be positive again.
c. Vaccination in the past
Vaccination against typhoid fever in the past can cause antibodies in the client's blood,
these antibodies can suppress bacteremia so that blood cultures are negative.
4. Treatment with anti-microbial drugs
If the client before blood culture has received antimicrobial drugs, the growth of germs in
culture media is inhibited and the results of culture may be negative.
5. Widal Test
Widal test is an agglutination reaction between antigen and antibody (agglutinin). Aglutinin
which is specific to salmonella thypi found in client serum with typhoid is also found in
people who have been vaccinated. The antigen used in the widal test is a salmonella
suspension that has been turned off and processed in the laboratory. The aim of the widal
test is to determine the presence of agglutinin in the serum of clients who are suspected of
having typhoid. As a result of infection by salmonella thypi, the client makes antibodies or
agglutinin, namely:
a. Aglutinin O, which is made because of the stimulation of the O antigen (derived
from the body of the germ).
b. Aglutinin H, which is made because of the stimulation of H antigen (derived from
the germ flagellum).
c. Aglutinin Vi, which is made because of the stimulation of Vi antigen (derived from
germ hoops)
Of the three agglutinins, only agglutinin O and H determined the titers for
diagnosis, the higher the titer, the bigger the client suffered typhoid.
Widal test is performed to detect antibodies to Salmonella typhi bacteria. Widal
test is said to be valuable if there is a 4-fold widal titer increase (on 5-7 days re-
examination) or widal O titer> 1/320, H> 1/60 (in one examination) titer Gall culture
with bile carr media is a definite diagnosis typhoid fever if the results are positive,
however, if the results of negative cultures do not rule out the possibility of typhoid, for
several reasons, namely the effect of antibiotics, insufficient samples. In accordance
with HR capabilities and the level of travel of typhoid fever, the clinical diagnosis of
typhoid fever is classified as:
1. Possible Case with history and physical examination found symptoms of
fever, gastrointestinal disorders, defecation patterns and hepato /
splenomegaly. Typhoid fever syndrome is incomplete.This diagnosis is only made
in basic health services.
2. Probable Case clinical symptoms have obtained complete or nearly
complete, and supported by an idea which underpins the labora t orium typhoid
fever (widal O titer> 1/160 or H> 1/160 one examination).
3. Definite Case Definitive diagnosis, S. Thypi was found in culture culture or
S.Thypi positives on PCR examination or there was a 4-fold increase in titer (on 5-
7 days re-examination) or widal O titer> 1/320, H> 1/640 ( on examination once) .

The principle of management of typhoid fever still adheres to the management trilogy
which includes: rest and care, diet and supportive therapy (both symptomatic and supportive),
and antimicrobial administration. In addition it is also necessary to manage complications of
typhoid fever which include intestinal and extraintestinal complications.
1. Rest and Care
Aim to prevent complications and speed healing. Bed rest with care done entirely in places
such as eating, drinking, bathing, and defecation. The position of the patient being
monitored to prevent dukubitus and orthostatic pneumonia and personal hygiene still need
attention and care.
2. Supporting Diet and Therapy
Maintain adequate calorie and fluid intake.
a. Providing a free diet that is low in fiber in patients without symptoms of meteorism,
and a filter slurry diet in patients with meteorism. This is done to avoid complications
of gastrointestinal bleeding and intestinal perforation. Patient nutrition is also
considered to improve the general condition and accelerate the healing process.
b. Adequate fluid to prevent dehydration due to vomiting and diarrhea.
c. Primperan (metoclopramide) is given to reduce symptoms of nausea and vomiting
with a dose of 3 x 5 ml before each meal and can be stopped whenever the patient has
no nausea anymore.
3. Antimicrobial Giving
Antimicrobial drugs that are often used in managing typhoid are:
In typhoid fever, the drug of choice is chloramphenicol with a dose of 4 x 500 mg per day
can be given orally or intravenously, given up to 7 days free of heat. Chloramphenicol
works by binding to the ribosome unit of the salmonella bacteria, inhibiting its growth by
inhibiting protein synthesis. Chloramphenicol has a negative and positive gram
spectrum. The side effect of using chloramphenicol is that agranulocytosis occurs. While
the loss of use of chloramphenicol is a high recurrence rate (5-7%), long-term use (14
days), and often causes a career.
Tiamfenikol, dosage and effectiveness in typhoid fever is the same as
chloramphenicol which is 4 x 500 mg, and the average fever decreases on days 5 to
6. Hematological complications such as the possibility of aplastic anemia are lower than
Ampisillin and Amoxicillin, the ability to reduce fever is lower than
chloramphenicol, at a dose of 50-150 mg / kgBB for 2 weeks.
Trimetroprim-sulfamethoxazole, (TMP-SMZ) can be used orally or intravenously
in adults at a dose of 160 mg TMP plus 800 mg SMZ twice daily in adults.
Third-generation cephalosforin, namely ceftriaxon with a dose of 3-4 grams in 100 cc
dextrose is given for ½ hour once daily, given for 3-5 days.
Flurokuinolone group (Norfloxacin, ciprofloxacin). Relatively, these classics are
inexpensive, well tolerated, and more effective than previous first-line drugs
(chlorampenicol, ampicillin, amoxicillin and trimethoprim-
sulfamethoxazole). Fluroquinolone has the ability to penetrate good tissue, so it can kill S.
thypi which is in a static stage in the monocytes / macrophages and can reach a higher drug
level in the gallblader than other drugs. This class of drugs can provide a fast therapeutic
response, such as reducing heat complaints and other symptoms in 3 to 5 days. The use of
fluriquinolone drugs can also reduce the likelihood of post-treatment career events.
Combination of 2 antibiotics or more is indicated in certain conditions such as
typhoid toxic, peritonitis or perforation, and septic shock. In pregnant women,
chloramphenicol is not recommended in the third trimester because it causes premature
labor, intrauterine fetal death, and gray syndrome in neonates. Tiamfenikol is not
recommended in the first trimester because it has teratogenic effects. The recommended
medication is ampicillin, amoxicillin and ceftriaxon. (Yudhistira.W.2009)

Elimination of alvi. Clients can experience constipation due to long bed
rest. While elimination of urine does not experience interference, only the color of
the urine becomes brownish yellow. Clients with typhoid fever increase in body
temperature which results in a lot of sweat coming out and feeling thirsty, so that it
can increase the body's fluid needs.
