Interpretation of widal test?

this test is applied for enteric fever that include typhoid and paratyphoid.the pathogen can be recovered from the blood during the first 7-10days of illness.

the widal test is a convenient method for detecting the abs produced during salmonella inf.

this method has its limitations. many individuals possess a low titre agglutinin that reacts with salmonella ags.

hence a rising titre give more significance than a single test value.

principal:- abs found in the serum are produced in response to exposure to salmonella organisms and will agglutinate a bacterial suspension of salmonella organisms(non infective) which carry homologus ags.

What causes Typhoid fever?

Typhoid is caused by the bacteria Salmonella typhi, which is a rod- shaped bacteria.
Typhoid fever bacteria (Salmonella typhi)causes the life-threatening illness known as typhoid fever. In the United States, only about 400 cases of typhoid fever occur each year, but the illness is still common in the developing world, where it affects about 21.5 million people annually.
Typhoid fever (also known as Enteric fever) is caused by a strain of "Salmonella" bacteria (Salmonellae typhi) when they are spread through the body by the white blood cells that attempted to destroy them. Salmonella are ingested from contaminated food or water and enter the body through the intestinal tract. Symptoms include general fever, headache, body ache, and fatigue. Increased heart rate can occur. Complications include infections, pneumonia, and intestinal bleeding.
An early treatment was the drug chloramphenicol, but today the treatment is with any of a number of antibiotics. After treatment, a small minority of infected persons become carriers of the disease.
Bacillus typhosa

Typhoid fever is caused by Salmonella typhii, a gram negative bacteria usually transmitted by food or hands contaminated with fecal material.

How do you read Widal test results for typhoid fever?

Widal test is an agglutination test for the detection of agglutinins (antibodies) for H and O antigen for salmonella in patients with enteric fever. Procedure: Serial dilutions of the patients serum is taken from 1:10 to 1:640. To each equal volumes of Salmonella antigens are added. The tubes are incubated overnight and read. Result: The highest dilution of the patients serum in which agglutinations occurs is noted, ex. if the dilution is 1 in 160 then the titer is 169. A single test of O titer of 1:100 or more and of H titer of 1:200 or more is significant. A rising titer of four fold or higher in an interval of 7 - 10 days is more meaningful than one test. Cautionary factors: In endemic areas, low titer of agglutinins is present in the serum of normal persons. Immunisation with TAB vaccine will show high titres of antibodies to S. typhi, S. paratyphi A and B. (in an infection there will be rise in only one type of antibodies) Person who have had past enteric infections or immunisations may develop anamestic reaction during unreleated fever like malaria. There is only a transient rise. Bacterial antigens used may contain fimbrial antigens which give false positive results. Cases treated early with chloramphenicol show poor antibody response. Test maybe positive in carriers
