San Francisco Threatened By Typhoid Fever.  “Antibiotics are used to treat typhoid, which may last up to two weeks even with treatment. If left untreated, up to 20 percent of patients may die and the illness may last for months.

There is a typhoid vaccine available for travelers to regions where the illness is common.”
