Typhoid fever is endemic in developing countries and may cause very different clinical findings. Although hepatic involvement and abnormal liver function tests may be seen in 50% of the patients, intravascular hemolysis and renal involvement are rare. In this report, a 10-year-old patient with enteric fever presenting with hepatitis, severe intravascular hemolysis and glomerulonephritis is presented. To see all of these findings together in a patient with typhoid fever is very rare and may cause diagnostic difficulties.
