case of enteric fever as per sonography of abdomen report
All Answers
Never leave a prolonged fever in a female n pediatrics both without r/o uti. Coming to this case there's high crp n esr. Pointing towards bacterial etiology. Then theres leucopenia n thrombocytopenia with lymphocytosis. Can happen in dengue and enteric fever. Usg supportive of enteric fever too. Sgpt can be elevated in dengue n sometimes in enteric fever too. Though widal is negative. I think treatment should b with ceftriaxone 2.5 GM in divided doses n azithromycin 500 mg twice daily with other supportive Rx.

CBC reveals decrease in WBC count, thrombocytopenia, with reactive lymphocytes, ESR and SGPT raised. Examine for HSM, if present go for scrub typhus. Adv USG abd, CT Abd, if reveals lymphadenopathy, go for FNAC. Find any history of tubercular contact. Admit and start with antibiotics pipercillin+ doxycycline, ivf, ppi, antipyretic. Rest line of treatment based on lab findings
Thank you doctor
