Jaundice, abdominal tenderness, tea like urine and diarrhea were reported in day seven of fever. His laboratorium showed result of hemoglobin 11.7 g/dL, leukocyte 3.050/µL, platelet 41.000/µL, aspartate transaminase (AST) 160.2 U/L, alanine transaminase (ALT) 78.65 U/L, total bilirubin 5.85 mg/dL, and direct bilirubin 4.7 mg/dL. IgG and IgM typhoid was negative at admission to Dr Sardjito General Hospital. The patient was referred to our hospital on day ten of fever. On physical examination we found abdominal tenderness, hepatosplenomegaly, icteric, ascites, and minimal bilateral pleural effusion. Salmonella typhi was positive from blood culture. Negative serological and viral markers of acute viral hepatitis A, B and C. Serological marker for dengue indicated secondary infection as IgG was positive and negative for IgM.
