Malaria with typhoid! What's more?
A 22 year old young female was diagnosed with malaria along with typhoid. Lab findings confirm the diagnosis.
Her past medical history indicates that she suffered fron typhoid 5 times in last 2 years.
However, none of her family members have suffered from the same even once.
What could be the underlying cause of such high susceptibility?
