Hello Good Evening,
According to your description, patient had typhoid infection, so she underwent to intestinal perforation
and had gone through surgery, this indicates that the disease was so serious and complicated with septicemia
, perforation, edema etc.
There are lots of complications of typhoid fever
, which affects almost every system of the body but less-common, some neurological manifestations events have included spastic paraplegia
, peripheral or cranial neuritis
, Guillain-Barré syndrome.
Skeletal muscle characteristically shows Zenker degeneration, particularly affecting the abdominal wall and thigh muscles.
Arthritis is very rare and most often affects the hip, knee, or ankle.
So it is a less common but long term neurological and musculo-skeletal complication of natural course of the disease and will take long time to recover.
