Hello, Thank you for the question.
Typhus is an infection of the digestive tract by Salmonella typhi bacteria which is transmitted through contaminated food and drink. Leukocytes are white blood cells that function to fight infections in the body. The number of leukocytes in general will increase when a bacterial infection occurs in the body. Because typhus is a bacterial infection, if someone has typhus, in general the number of leukocytes will increase.
To make sure someone has typhus or not, in addition to understanding the patient's complaints and doing a physical examination, blood tests are necessary. Blood tests can be done in the form of a Widal test or a Tubex test. The check you are doing is the Widal check. Widal examination is intended to detect the immune system that is formed when an infection occurs in the body. A person is said to have typhus if the Widal test shows a positive result for Salmonella typhi (not parathypi). Please consult the results of this blood test to the doctor who examined you and suggested this blood test. The doctor will explain to you what happened to you and the next treatment.
Hope this information is helpful.
