Conclusions

We have described a case of severe thrombocytopenia in typhoid fever with slow clinical and laboratory response but complete recovery after appropriate antibiotic therapy and supportive care alone, thus avoiding the risks associated with platelet transfusions or plasmapheresis. The optimal management of thrombocytopenia in typhoid fever merits further study to guide clinical practice.
