Abstract

Infectious diseases imported from other countries have increased. Feco-oral route is the most common mode of transmission for both typhoid fever and hepatitis A, and thus infection by these agents have an association with poor sanitation. A 30-year-old male was visited to the hospital because of high fever after traveling in Thailand. The level of hepatic transaminases were mildly elevated and viral serological marker for hepatitis was negative. The blood culture was reported positive for Salmonella typhi. After a few days, the level of hepatic transaminases rapidly increased and viral serological marker for hepatitis became positive with anti-hepatitis A viral IgM at follow-up. Therefore we report a case of co-infection of S. typhi and viral hepatitis A after traveling abroad.
