Hi,
Thanks for your query.
I think part of the report is missing as your report didn’t contain the antibody titer values of SALMONELLA TYPHI'O', SALMONELLA TYPHI 'H', SALMONELLA PARA TYPHI 'AH', SALMONELLA PARATYPHI 'BH' in your blood. It only contains the reference values.
Would you please attach the scan copy of widal report? Or you please write the values so that I can help you by interpreting the result.
Waiting for your reply.
Wish you good health.
Thanks,
Dr Sourav Ganguly
