Abstract EN

Typhoid fever is a systemic illness that is characterized by abdominal pain and fever.

It is caused by gram negative rod Salmonella enterica serotype Typhi and Paratyphi A, B, C.

The disease goes through stages and its clinical manifestations varies according to the stage of illness.

In this case report we present a case of a young healthy male who presented with abdominal pain which was initially diagnosed with an impression of acute surgical abdomen due to bowel obstruction and later identified to have intestinal intussusception secondary to enteric fever.

This type of gastrointestinal complication is considered an uncommon complication of the infective process of Typhoid fever.

Reporting this case would help in raising the attention toward such complications which may be confused with other differentials of acute abdomen.
