dc.description.abstract Salmonellosis is one of the commonest endemic diseases in Tropical Africa. Furthermore, typhoid fever is a disease that is unique to man with no other animal species acquiring an illness similar to man even after oral ingestion of the live 0rganisms (Homick et al., 1970). Typhoid fever has a myriad of complications. Typhoid colitis is distinctly uncommon judging from the paucity of reports in the literature. We report two cases of typhoid colitis who had massive rectal hemorrhage, which should alert one to the possiblility of typhoid colitis. One of the cases developed myocarditis as well. en_US
