Abstract

A 45-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital because of high fever and malaise. She also presented abnormal urine findings including macrohematuria and proteinuria with transient renal insufficiency. Salmonella Typhi was isolated from her blood and stool culture, and then she was diagnosed as having typhoid fever. Salmonella enterica serotype typhi infection can be complicated by renal involvement, although rare. In Japan, few cases have been reported about acute nephritic syndrome in typhoid fever. Here, we report a case of endemic acquired typhoid fever associated with acute renal failure probably due to acute nephritic syndrome successfully treated with levofloxacin.
