13 Possible Causes for Positive Widal Test, Viral Hepatitis

  • Typhus

    Thus, scrub typhus hepatitis differs from acute viral hepatitis secondary to liver damage due to host immune responses, which causes severe lobular disarray with diffuse hepatocytic[] This case suggests that scrub typhus hepatitis causes mild focal inflammation due to direct liver damage without causing piecemeal necrosis or interface hepatitis.[]

  • Hepatosplenomegaly

    The Widal test is unreliable but is widely used in developing countries because of its low cost.[] Causes include: infection: acute viral hepatitis infectious mononucleosis cytomegalovirus haematological disease: leukaemia myeloproliferative disease lymphoma pernicious[] Another common cause of this condition is acute viral hepatitis.[]

  • Infectious Colitis

    Serological tests, such as the Widal reaction, have been widely used but these are non‐specific, giving false positive results, and can be difficult to interpret.[] It can be caused by bacterial, viral, and parasitic pathogens.[] Blood cultures are typically positive in 60 to 80% of cases, while bone marrow cultures are more sensitive with 80 to 95% positive, even after prior antibiotic therapy ( Parry[]

  • Splenic Rupture

  • Acute Cerebellar Ataxia

    The diagnosis of enteric fever was confirmed by positive blood culture, strongly positive Widal test and rising antibody titres.[] hepatitis B, and diphtheria-pertussis-tetanus vaccines.[] Cases of acute cerebellar ataxia have been reported as a consequence of several viral and bacterial infections as well as immunizing agents, such as varicella, influenza,[]

  • Splenic Abscess

  • Invasive Non-Typhoidal Salmonellosis

    Diagnosis The classical method for confirming a Salmonella infection was by testing for the presence of antibodies using a Widal aggulation test.[] HIV antibody and viral load testing were negative. A right upper quadrant ultrasound revealed mild hepatomegaly with nonspecific signs of hepatitis.[] This method is highly unreliable and in an experiment only tested positive on 38.5% of confirmed Salmonella infections [7].[]

  • Paratyphoid Fever

    Blood cultures are positive for S. typhi (or S. paratyphi ). Widal's test is usually negative.[] Thus, the administration of the anti-viral agent entecavir may greatly improve the prognosis of this patient with chronic hepatitis B, and the episodes of paratyphoid fever[] Since fever was not coming down, the doctor advised blood & urine tests. Her Widal test is positive, blood culture reports are still due.[]

  • Autoimmune Lymphoproliferative Disease Type Dianzani

    HIV, angiotensin converting enzyme, serum protein electrophoresis, anti nuclear antibody, Coombs test, viral markers for hepatitis B and C were all negative.[] Antiglobuline test was positive Ig G type.[] Serologic tests for specific infection diseases including CMV, EBV, HIV, HCV, HBV, leishmaniasis, TPHA/VDRL, Widal, and Right were negative.[]

  • Hyperviscosity Syndrome

    Most cryoglobulins are mixed monoclonal IgMpolyclonal IgG immune complexes and many are associated with hepatitis C viral infection.[] Culture for Salmonella typhi was negative;Widal test and HIV were also negative. The patient wasstarted on chloroquine and symptomatic therapy.[] […] bettermanagement of cases of drug-resistant falciparum malariawith bowel symptoms.A 22-yr-old man developed intermittent fever of 5 daysduration with peripheral blood smear positivity[]
