About the BookTyphoid is widely prevalent all over the world but more so in developing countries. During the last few decades profile of the disease has been changing and is manifesting with a varied spectrum of life-threatening complications and even a high degree of morbidity and mortality.
Typhoid has been in existence since times of yore and despite rapid strides in our knowledge there still exist gaps. This book provides an insight into the various aspects of the disease ranging from clinical profile, complications and management.
