Brief Answer:
Sal H 1:200, Sal O 1:100 is positive

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to XXXXXXX

Your report is positive for typhoid fever. This is suggested by the widal test results sent by you.

The Sal T O stands for salmonella typhi O and Sal T H stands for salmonella typhi H.
The Sal T H titer should be 1: 160 to 200 to be positive.
The Sal T O titer should be more than 1: 100 to be positive.
Sal PT A and B stands for salmonella paratyphi A and B for which your report is negative.

Please get in touch with your GP for appropriate therapy.
Wishing you speedy recovery.
