Typhoid

Typhoid is caused following the ingestion of contaminated food or water infected with the bacterium Salmonella enterica, serotype typhi. Paratyphoid fever is less severe but clinically similar, caused by Salmonella paratyphi.

The vast majority of cases occur in Asia but there are still reports of infections across the world, particularly in Africa and parts of Central & South America.
