Abstract :
Background: Typhoid fever is caused by Salmonella typhi bacteria. Typhoid fever is rare in industrialized countries. However, it remains a serious health threat in the developing world, especially for children. Typhoid fever spreads through contaminated food and water or through close contact with someone who's infected. Signs and symptoms usually include high fever, headache, abdominal pain, and either constipation or diarrhea. Most people with typhoid fever feel better within a few days of starting antibiotic treatment, although a small number of them may die of complications. Vaccines against typhoid fever are available, but they're only partially effective. Materials and Methods: This is case control study aimed to measure of RFT (renal function test) urea and creatinine in fifty patient (50) with recurrent typhoid fever. People involved in this study aged (25-50) years Sudanese in Kassala state. The study period extended from march to November (2018), investigation were performed by using spectrophotometer. This assessed the measure of urea and creatinine in serum sample among (25) recurrent typhoid patient as study group and non typhoid patient as control group by using spectrophotometer. Results: The study reflect that the mean and stander deviation of urea(5.39 mg/dl ) and creatinine ( 0.135 mg/dl ) in recurrent typhoid patient and the result obtained from control group revealed that the mean and stander deviation of urea ( 5.29 mg/dl ) and creatinine ( 0.178 mg/dl) the mean conclusion derived from this study. There is significant effect in urea related to recurrent typhoid patient . And insignificant effect in creatinine level with p value (<0.05) .
