DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2018.038
Synopsis: 
We retrospectively evaluated the records of 100 patients (46 female and 54 male) with a mean age of 8.78 ± 4.66 years (range: 5‒213 months). We determined that, in children with arthralgia accompanying typhoid fever; muscle pain and organomegaly were the most common symptoms accompanying arthralgia while knee joint and ankle were the most commonly affected joints. In treatment 3rd generation cephalosporin should be kept in mind in unresponsive patients.

ABSTRACT

Aim: To determine the general characteristics of children with arthralgia associated with typhoid fever.

Material and Method: General characteristics of the disease and laboratory of children diagnosed with typhoid fever and accompanying arthralgia were investigated from the hospital records. Arthralgia was determined regarding the patients’ personal reports.
