Hello and welcome to HCM, The test result that you have posted is Widal test done for typhoid and paratyphoid A and B fever. The tests detects presence of antibodies against antigens O and H of Salmonella typhi and Salmonella paratyphi. The titres of 1:80 and above are suggestive of typhoid fever. The antibody titres for salmonella paratyphi are lower than 1:80 and are hence negative. You need to consult your doctor with report for clinical correlation and plan further management.
Thanks and take care Dr Shailja P Wahal
