How can you diagnose typhoid and malaria at a time?
It is very common practice in developing countries to treat the typhoid fever as a case of malaria, specially in the first week. You tell patient that he has malaria. He does not respond to your antimalarial treatment. Then you have no option but to tell the patient that he has got both malaria and typhoid at the same time. The fact is that typhoid is usually difficult to diagnose in the first week of fever. It is always better to rule out the malarial fever by giving the antimalarial treatment in first week of febrile illness.
