Typhoid fever and viral hepatitis are endemic in many developing countries. Both are transmitted by the feco-oral route and are associated with poor sanitation. Co-existence of both the infection is possible posing a diagnostic dilemma for the treating physician. We report a 7-year-old boy, who had co-existent typhoid fever and hepatitis A infection and was managed successfully. An aim of this report is to discuss the clinical scenario and presentation when typhoid fever and hepatitis A occur concurrently in a patient.
