Brief Answer:
May be significant

Detailed Answer:
In view of those symptoms, I would definitely suggest to test further on the basis of this report.
It does look like typhoid fever with that report.

I would suggest Typhi Dot IgG, IgM tests.
Also I would suggest to change the antibiotics to ciprofloxacin.
If these tests turn out to be positive, we may have to switch to injectible antibiotics.

Also suggest testing complete hemogram.
Best of luck
